Your server comes with 1 IPv4 address included. You can get up to 128 addresses. but they have additional cost: For the first 16 IPv4 addresses, you may only pay €2 setup fee, and no monthly charge. Starting with your 17th IPv4 address, you may pay €2 monthly, in adition to the €2 setup fee.

If you intend to run multiple KVM, you may need to create a virtual MAC for each address you want to put in a VM from the Manager. Then, you bridge your VM to the physical interface and put your MAC ethernet the virtual MAC the manager generated.

You have a /64 block, that is, 2 ^ 64 addresses, seems difficult you will ran out of IPv6 addresses. There's no option to buy additional block.

I suppose it's possible, as the Ubuntu kernels are multi-purpose, but can assure. I'd recommend Proxmox for virtualization, as you can have both lightweight containers and fully virtualized KVMs

Hello,



I was wondering if someone could help me with the following:
- For a soyoustart dedi, how many IPv4 addresses are available? I can see on the site there is only 1, but I would host multiple VM's on a hypervisor, some directly on the internet with an IPv4. Is there indeed only one and if so, can there be extra IPv4 addresses ordered?

Thanks in advance for your help!
