Hi There,

Welcome to the forum.

I believe you will need to speak to support, as they need to ask you about your intended use of the IP's (RIPE/ARIN conditions). I think you have to order the IP's first, then wait for their contact...

There is basically no difference between failover and other IP's. Order them, confirm proper use with support, then to attach them to your server:

How would I go about using failover ip? I can't find the option for it in the server manager.

I found a page to order IP's but I thought that was separate from failoverip and assumed that all 16 of our ip's would already be in the manager. Is this not the case? Do I need to contact support to get the failoverip under the conditons of RIPE/ARIN?
