Adding extra IPs
You receive a server with only one IP address. If it is allowed by the plan you signed up with, you can always send requests for additional IPs from your cp. To send a request for an extra range of IPs:
1. Go to the Dedicated Servers/Manage Servers menu
2. Choose the server you want to add IPs to
3. On the next page, click Add Extra IP(s)
4. Fill in the number of IPs you want to add.
Dedicated server backup
Cpwebhosting.net use a complete bare metal recovery solution that allows us to recover our servers as well as those of our clients in less then 30 minutes from a completed server crash.
I think RAID1 is enough and never use any other form of backup. Even RAID5 would be better than RAID1, but both are prone to hackers defacing data. An actual backup somewhere else would allow you to restore data after a server compromise.
