You can switch from an existing IP address on your Panel-managed server to a newly created IP address or to another existing address.
During life-time of a Panel installation, you may need to replace IP addresses used for hosting with other IP addresses. Replacing all old IP addresses with new ones may be necessary when moving a Panel server onto a new network. More often, you may need to introduce more subtle changes in your server's IP address pool. For example, you may need to free up one or more IP addresses currently used for hosting on the server. This will allow you to use the addresses for other purposes or to eliminate them from the server's IP pool altogether.
Every time you replace an IP address with a new one on a Parallels Plesk Panel server, you need to reconfigure Panel and various services to use the new IP address instead of the replaced one.
You can switch from one IP address to another and automatically reconfigure Panel and all hosting services on the server to use the new address by using the Change Server IP Addresses option in the Reconfigurator utility.
Note: By using this feature, you can only replace one IP address with another. You cannot migrate a group of select domains from one or more IP addresses to a new IP address.
To change from one IP address on a Panel-managed server to another, follow these steps:
To view the list of domains hosted on particular IP address, click the IP address entry to highlight it. The list of hosted domains using the highlighted IP address is displayed in a window to the right.
Panel installation is reconfigured to use the newly specified IP addresses in place of the old ones. All relevant records in the Panel's database are updated, network adapters settings are changed accordingly (the old IP addresses are removed), FTP and web servers are reconfigured accordingly, DNS records are updated accordingly.
Note: If changing IP address fails during execution, all changes are rolled back. When connected to the server through the Remote Desktop connection, a change of your server's IP address will terminate your session.
