How to add additional or remove existing IP address for FlexCloud instance via Management Console 

 

There are two ways to add additional IP addresses to your instance. The first way is applicable in case you are going to use the IP address for a specific instance (and never going to move it to another).

1. Login to FlexCloud Console at https://manage.hostwaycloud.com or login to your SiteControl account and then click on Cloud Services under Manage Services > FlexCloud Server > click the link next to Management Console Access:

2. Once logged into the Console, ensure you are managing the desired zone (Austin, Tampa or Vancouver currently).
