For Cloud Servers, Virtual Server Cloud, Dedicated Servers and Server Power Deals managed in the Cloud Panel  

Create a public IP address to monitor the server using a monitoring policy.


If you want to assign an IP address to an existing server, you must do this while the IP is being created. If you do not assign the IP right away, you will only be able to assign it to servers that you create in the future. You cannot assign an IP to an existing server retroactively.
