In some cases, users may find it necessary to open additional ports to their Shell. In order for you to allow any traffic to any other port on your Shell, you must purchase a Dedicated Public IP address for $1 from the Shells Console.
Purchasing Your Dedicated IP Address
Go to Shells Console > ADMINISTRATION > ORDER IP ADDRESS. There, you can enter your payment information to buy a Dedicated Public IP address for $1.
After the purchase is complete, refresh the Shells console to see changes and reveal the new Dedicated Public IP Address.
The Default Management IP (SSH Only) that came with your Shell will remain the same.
Remember you can always check your valid IP address in the ADMINISTRATION tab of your Shells Console.
Your Shell now has a dedicated IP Address!
