How to create a private network
Private networking is a configuration we can offer our customers who choose a KVM virtual server in Canada or a Dedicated Server in France or Canada. A private network is essentially a block of IPs assigned to your virtual servers. You need at least two servers for your private networking to work.
Once we have configured a private networking your servers can then talk to each other internally without any bandwidth usage. You can secure your servers from the outside world which is useful if you have a database server or a server which holds sensitive information. It’s possible to assign a private network to existing virtual servers but we need root access to the servers to add your private networking interface into the networking files.
In all cases we need up to 48 hours to configure and test your private network before we can allow you to use them, this ensures there are no problems when you start to use the servers in a production environment. For users who want a private network on a cluster of dedicated servers, we can also offer load balancing across all of your clusters.
To request us to configure a private network for your virtual or dedicated server first make sure you have at least two servers then submit a ticket from your client area to our product support team who will assist you further.
