Read this full knowledge base article and know how do you add another IP address?
All our Virtual Private Servers include 1 IP address. If you require more than one IP you can purchase one through the control panel.
For cPanel and web hosting users, all IP address requests must be justified with a legitimate reason. SEO is not a legitimate reason, Google rankings do NOT in anyway take into account or know if you have a dedicated or shared IP. cPanel also fully supports SNI which enables you to host multiple SSL enabled websites on a shared IP address (the same as normal shared hosting), so SSL is also no longer a valid reason for extra IP addresses in a cPanel environment.
Portal Login Explained
If you login to the portal website using your email address and password you can administer all your VPSs, change account details, place new orders etc.
If you login to the portal website using your VPS username and password you will only have access to manage a single VPS, no mention of VPSBlocks is made, and no ability to modify your account or order services.
To order a new IP address
1. Go to https://portal.controlmyvps.com.au
2. Login using your email address and password
3. Click on the 'Virtual Servers' on the left hand side
4. Click on 'Manage' next to the VPS in question
5. Click on 'Addons' -> 'Order IP Address'
6. Click 'Order Now' next to '1 x IP Address'.
You can order multiple IP addresses for a single VPS, but each will need to be placed as a separate order using the process above. IP addresses are automatically provisioned and you will be informed within a few minutes of your new IP address.
Once you receive the new IP you will have to add it to your VPS.
With WHM/cPanel VPSs this is done in WHM under the IP Functions option.
For Ubuntu or Debian see: https://www.vpsblocks.com.au/support/Knowledgebase/Article/View/62/0/adding-an-ip-address-in-ubuntu
For Windows this is done in the Network Adapter properties.

Save the file.
