Failover IP - Quickstart
Failover IPs are IP addresses you can order and move from one server to another (even across datacenters), without changing your whole configuration. If your server is out of order, you can move the failover IP to your fallback server, and keep your services available without any downtime. Failover IPs can also be used as additional IP addresses for a single server, for example, if you want to give each website in Plesk its IP. Another functionality of Failover IPs is to create virtual machines on your Dedibox.
Failover IPs are associated with the Dedibox product and cannot be moved to a different product category. For example, a failover IP can be moved to another Dedibox server, but it cannot be transferred to other service types like Load Balancers or Elastic Metal servers.
