Assigning Multiple IP Addresses to Single LAN Card. By default, your machine might have a single eth0 ip address. Run command ifconfig and you will something like below. Now you want to create network aliases for eth0 so you can use multiple IP addresses on this server.

I am more concerned with security. I do not want my server IP and application IP to be the same.

Hey friend,

We only issue one IPv4 address per droplet, but we also issue up to 16 IPv6 addresses per droplet. You can read more about IPv6 here: https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/networking/ipv6/

Is it still true that there is an SEO penalty for shared IPs? I would have thought not, given how many people are using CDNs with shared IPs these days (like CloudFlare).
