Creating a Public IP address

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

Requirement

You are in the Network > Public IP section in the left menu of the Cloud Panel.

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 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.

  • Click Create.

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

  • 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 Not assigned option. In this case, the IP address remains free and can be assigned to a server at a later time.

  • Optional: To create a Reverse DNS, click Show in the Advanced Options section. Then enter the desired Reverse DNS.

  • Click Create.
