Overview

You can use the IP Addresses screen to view and assign private and public IP addresses for your virtual machines. 

By default, IP addresses assigned to a virtual machine are private; however, you can request a public IP address.

Armor offers one free public IP address per virtual machine. You can request additional public IP addresses for the same virtual machine at an additional cost.

Additionally, there is a cost associated with a public IP address that is not assigned (routed) to a virtual machine / private IP address.
