How Do i get additional IPs ?

  • January 16, 2009
We will be more than happy to assign additional IPs to your server. Before we can do this, however, we will need some information from you. As ARIN* - the governing body of IP distribution - requires justification proving the use of allocated IPs, we will need a list of the domains you will be using with these IPs as well as the technical reasons why these domains cannot be virtually hosted on one IP.

This justification should be a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) that will be hosted on the IP. Please note that, for justification purposes, there cannot be more than three occurrences of a domain (ie,,, You will also need to provide the technical reason why these domains cannot be virtually hosted. As soon as we have this information, we will forward it to our DNS/IP admins.

You are allowed up to 8 IPs without justification. However, if you need more than 8, you must have 100% justification for the first 8IPs and then 60% justification for all IPs thereafter.

For example, if you have one IP and you request 35 additional IPs for your server, we will need justification for 28 - in other words, we would require 16 FQDNs for the initial 16 IPs, plus 12 FQDNs for 60% justification of the remaining 20.
