How to assign a failover IP

Reviewed on 29 July 2021Published on 29 July 2021

Failover IP addresses allow you to have several IPs on the server and thus, for example, to have one IP for each website or for each virtual machine. Your IP failover can be routed at any time to your servers in just a few minutes by using the Dedibox Console or through the Dedibox API. By switching your failover IP addresses from one server to another, the hosted services remain available without reconfiguring the IP address.

For each server, you can add failover IP address(es) according to the offer and your service level.

Requirements:
  1. Click Server in your Dedibox console to display a list of your dedicated servers. Then click on the server you want to configure.

  2. On the server’s status page click Failover in the menu on the left.

  3. The list of your existing failover IPs displays. Drag and drop your failover IP from the list on the left on the ID of the server you want to use as destination host.

  4. Click Update once you finish the failover IP destination configuration.

The failover IP will be routed to the new destination host within a few minutes.
