Add an Additional IP to Plesk

For Linux

Learn how to add an IP purchased through the 1&1 Control Panel to Plesk.

To add an IP in Plesk, you must have an additional IP address provided by 1&1. Once ordered, you must ensure that the domain points to the correct IP in the DNS settings.

Please note:
If you have been contacted by 1&1 regarding an IP address change, you do not need to purchase an additional IP/make DNS changes. The notice you received regarding the IP address change from 1&1 should contain the replacement IP address to add.
