Hi

Criot is correct, its not possible to move IP from OVH to SYS, however it is possible from SYS to OVH.

Naturally you can still move the IP between OVH to OVH.

Thanks

Danny

Take into account that IPs can't be moved from OVH to SYS (I don't believe, maybe someone can confirm as I've not tried it personally), so if you're wanting to keep current IPs you'd need to stick with OVH directly.

BW, checking costs, it could be a better option for you to move to a new server. miniSP costs €55.99, and professional use costs €15, for a total of €70.99. For €71.99, you can get a new server(SP-32, plus €99.99 one time installation fee, or €20 monthly for 6 months) and get up to 256 IPs paying only €2 setup fee per IP(no monthly cost). You can also move your existing IPs to your new server(except the main one). And, with that, you would get new hardware.

Not sure if those rules may have changed by now.
It seems that might still be the case. Do you need the Pro Option active all months you want the extra IP address(s) you've bought to stay active or is that just needed to continue buying more?

I am not sure if my server is now classed as "SYS" range but it's called a mini SP server in the control panel and it's from 2013. Anyway, how many Fail Over IP's can this have? I have 3 at the moment and it's told I have reached my limit but other people seem to have more. Does this mean I have to go via the RIPE way now?
