Requesting an additional IP for your Hostway Environment

 

 

Please submit a ticket with the below form filled out:

Note that there is a charge of $2 per month for each additional IP.

 

Before a new IP is assigned, make sure that you MUST use 60% of the IP addresses that have been provided within the day of assignment. A one-week grace period is allowed to cover equipment issues.

This means that if you have for example 50 IP addresses assigned, 30 IP addresses must be “pingable” one week after the IP addresses were assigned.

Note that

80% of the assigned IP addresses MUST be in use, or the IP addresses will be withdrawn.

90% of assigned IP addresses MUST be in use before we will issue any additional IP addresses.

 

If an IP address is made for a new website that will reside on a server with an existing website, that a second IP isn’t necessary.  It is possible to run multiple sites on a single IP with the use of virtual hosting:

Apache Web Server: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/vhosts/name-based.html

Microsoft IIS Web Server: http://support.microsoft.com/directory/article.asp?ID=KB;EN-US;Q190008
