VPS without Public IP
Usually, Elastic VPS requires an obligatory public IP address to be operated as a fully isolated and secured container with a single entry point. However, sometimes, a user may need to build a special application infrastructure, which is partially inaccessible from outside of the environment. In this case, a VPS with an internal IP may be required.
If you receive such a request, you can allow this particular client to use VPS with internal IP address instead of the external one.
- Navigate to the Users section of your JCA panel and Search for the appropriate email (or UID) to quickly find the required client:
Select this user to display additional information in the section to the right.
- Switch to the Quotas tab and find the vds.internal.ip.enabled quota, which allows a user to detach a Public IP (the internal IP will be attached instead) from a VPS. So, double-click on the corresponding field and enable quota by changing the value to 1 (set 0 to disable).
Click Update to save the new value.
- Now, this user can detach external IPs from the existing virtual private servers and create new ones with just internal address.
