I got an “old” webserver running Ubuntu 14.10 LTS. Now I would like to utilize the new floating IP feature, so I can make it possible to make upgrades and changes to the server, without downtime.
Now is there anyway that I can get the floating IP on my current server, while keeping the current public IP until the public DNS for my website is fully globally propagated?
