More than one ip for a VM would be great. A small subnet maybe ..
We use digital ocean for cpanel web hosting. It would be nice to be able to offer our customers the ability to use dedicated IP's. We would even pay more for this service.
Since you have a WHM/cPanel one-click droplet and WHM is used to host multiple cPanel accounts, each with its own domain and IP, it makes sense that DO would help by assigning subnet to a droplet.
Definitely need the ability to request a small subnet.
a small subnet would be nice.
well that will be so cool , but DO's did not allow more than one ip
Hopefully they might allow / provide in the future
Unfortunately we do not provide more than 1 IP per virtual server, if there are particular needs that require more than one IP let us know and we'll help you create a work around.
Maybe you can think of standard additions for a vitual server, such as paid additional ips or subnets?
We don't have any plans yet to add more IP space to current virtual servers but if you let us know what your intended use is we could probably help you with a work around.
Um, clearly needed more than one site with a SSL Certificate requires more than one IP address. Not allowing this at all, kind of a deal breaker.
Multiple SSL certs on a single IP can be configured with Nginx and is supported by the majority of modern browsers.
Are there any other use cases for multiple IPs that you are interested in?
SNI is not supported using Internet Explorer on Windows XP. Considering Windows XP still has more than 20% of the operating system market share, that leaves out an awfully large number of users. Again, deal breaker.
That's true but it is a decreasing market share and for some specific companies that share is much lower. Last time we checked we had only 10% internet explorer traffic if that.
Unfortunately we aren't supporting multiple IPs for a virtual server, and if we did the cost would probably be close to getting a second virtual server anyway so it's almost easier and cheaper overall to get another virtual machine.
some of your customer may want to setup their own shared hosting on your virtual machines for their many small website customers. Many of these may need SSL if they are eshops. Forcing to buy a differen VPS per ip, makes your service more expensive and more inefficient. Can you image that I should buy and setup a new VPS, instead of setting up just another apache virtual host?
If you want to resell through us you can also follow our article on Nginx on how to setup multiple SSLs on a single IP using Nginx:
I'll add that I've done this successfully with Lighttpd. Somewhere in the 1.4 branch they supported SNI as well. Just enable it primarily then set a certificate per vhost. I did test and it works.
Maybe the possibility to purchase more IP addresses at a reasonable price per month.
more Ip-v6 free, is an alternative for who need more ips
We will be adding IPv6 support in 2013 =]
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
