In this article we will explain how you can add a second IP address to your Windows server. In this example we used a Windows 2019 server. Adding an IP on other versions differs slightly. But you should still be able to follow this tutorial.

Before you can add an extra IP to your server you will need to have one assigned to your server package. In case you require an extra IP please send us an email.
