This article is if you want an exclusive IP address on your hosting package or domain for any reason (typically if you want to install an SSL cert on some of our older shared plans you will require this).
*Please note that if you are using any nameservers other than Blacknight's then you will need to update the ip address the domain is pointing to on those nameserver to the new exclusive ip address. This change will typically take 60-120 minutes for the DNS to propagate to the new IP*
If you are on a VM or a newer shared hosting plan through cp.blacknight.com then please follow the below instructions for how to order an extra IP address:
# Under: Account >> Buy Additional Resource >> subscription name >> "Number of IP addresses"
# Then press "Buy Resource" >> Next >> Place Order
# This might take a few hours after payment is processed to go through
If you have a shared plan then here is how to set up the newly purchased IP address on your domain or webspace:
# Under: Websites >> Domainname >> Website Configuration >> Edit >> Select "Exclusive IPv4" and press Submit
# Under: Wesbites >> domainname >> Web >> Edit >> Change the IP Address Type to "New Exclusive IP address"
