Failover IPs are additional IPs that can be switched from one server to another within a few seconds (a failover subnet can only be switched as a whole). This can be done via the Robot webinterface or via the Robot API. A failover script is also available. The failover IPs have to be configured on all involved servers.

Single Failover IPs

Every dedicated server can be allocated up to 3 single failover IPs.

Failover IPs require the Flexi-Pack (15 Euros per month).

1 Failover IP – 5 Euros per month

Each additional IP order via Robot is for one single IP, so if you need more than one additional single IP please make multiple orders.

Failover Subnets

Please order a normal subnet and make a note in the comments section that you want it as a Failover subnet and that you agree to the additional costs.

Failover subnets require the Flexi-Pack (15 Euros per month).

The following Failover subnets can be ordered:
/29 (6 usable IPs) – 15 Euros per month
/28 (14 usable IPs) – 25 Euros per month


To order additional IP addresses please login to the Robot administration webinterface, select "Servers" from the menu on the left and then select the server you want the IPs for. The first tab (that should automatically be open) is called "IPs". At the bottom of this tab page you can click on the link titled "Ordering of additional IP, failover IP or subnet". You will now see an overview of the IPs you can order, along with the price for each option.

RIPE guidelines

IPs are only allocated if they conform to RIPE guidelines. This means we require a valid technical reason for why the IPs are needed.

IP allocation

IP addresses are allocated during normal office hours: Mo-Fri 7:30am-4:30pm
