In this article, you will learn about 10G uplink.
We offer a 10G uplink for many of our dedicated servers. This replaces the 1G uplink. Only one uplink per server is possible. You can either directly order a new server with a 10G uplink, or write a support request and have an existing server moved to an appropriate rack. For the second option, we will charge you a relocation fee. In addition, you will not be able to keep your old IP addresses if you switch to a 10G uplink.
The included traffic volume for outgoing traffic is 20TB. There is no bandwidth limitation. Overusage is billed. Incoming and internal traffic is unlimited.
Changes needed after the 10G Upgrade
After the support moved your server into a 10G rack you need to adjust the network configuration of your operating system. Usually, two things need to be changed:
- IP addresses
- Interface Name
The support will boot the server and will send you the root password. You can find the new IPs in the client’s area by clicking on the server. There you can hover over the IPv4 address to see the subnet mask and gateway.
After you have changed the interface name and IPs in your network configuration you can reboot the server and it should be reachable after a few minutes.
