Change IP Address of your Server
To change the public IP Address of your Linux machine you need to have an additional IP Address.
If you don't have any additional IP Address you need to buy it from us. To do that is too easy, open a ticket in the support area and ask for an IP or Multiple IP, a member of our billing department will add the IP to your service, and will generate an invoice.
After that you'll be able to follow these instructions.
Before changing your IP address, make sure to have a look at your current IP address.
To find your current IP address, you can easily use the "IP" command with the "a" option for the address like that:
Or you can see it with the "ifconfig" command of the "net-tools" package:

You can assign multiple IP addresses or modify the existing one already set. To do that, you need to change the IP under
addresses: and put the IP address that you want to use.
After that save the configuration file and run this command:
sudo netplan applyIf you are connected through SSH, you will be disconnected after run the command above and you can easily reconnect to the server with your new IP.
To change the IP on a Debian System, you need to edit the network-manager interface configuration file.
