Can I order additional IP addresses for my subscriptions?

For $2 per month per IP, MacStadium offers individual, public IP addresses.

To configure a second IP address in macOS, follow these steps:

  • Within System Preferences select “Network” and click the “+” button in the bottom left hand corner.
  • Under the “Interfaces” drop down, choose “Ethernet” and provide a name (you’re free to choose the name, eg. Ethernet 2). This will allow you to configure a second IP address under the new interface you created.

Another use for multiple IP addresses is when running VMware ESXi on your hosted Mac. When you start a hosted Mac subscription running VMware ESXi, it includes one IP address for public internet access. But, you’ll need to order more if you wish to build virtual machines that are publicly accessible via the internet.

We also offer large IP address blocks. A block must be ordered via support ticket. These make sense if you have a cluster of servers or virtual machines and need consecutive IP addresses.
