Creating a Public IP address

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

Please note: 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 can only select it for a newly created server. You cannot assign an IP to an existing server retroactively.

Step 1

In the left menu, click Network > Public IP.

Step 2

Click Create.

Step 3

Select whether you want to create an IPv4 or IPv6 address.

Step 4

Select a server to which you want to assign the new IPv4 or IPv6 address. If you do not want to assign the IP address, select the Unassigned option. In this case, the IP address remains free and can be assigned to a server at a later time.

Step 5

Optional: To create a Reverse DNS, click Show in the Show other settings section. Then enter the desired Reverse DNS.

Step 6
