How to add your additional IP address (CentOS )
These are the steps to add the second IP address to your existing network adapter under CentOS or Redhat distributions of Linux. 

1. Become root on your system, either by logging into that account or using the su command. Change your current directory to the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory with the command: 
# cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts 
Check for existing network adapters with the command: ls ifcfg-* In most instances, you will see the files ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-lo. 
2. To create the new interface, you will copy ifcfg-eth0 to ifcfg-eth0:0 with the command: 
# cp ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg-eth0:0 
Next, edit icfg-eth0:0 and change the DEVICE line to: 
DEVICE= eth0:0 
and change the IPADDR line to be the new IP: 
IPADDR= ip.ip.ip.ip 
3.To activate the new IP address, issue a command similar to: 
# ifup eth0:0

"This is by far the best service I have ever seen from a server hosting provider. Their virtual servers are no different than the dedicated server I moved from and they managed to import my dedicated server.. like magic! Thanks guys for the excellent service"

"I got my first VMware server from vps-hosting.ca and I have to say I was very impressed. I realize I was wasting money on my dedicated server as these virtuals seem to perform extremely well. Also I really didn't expect to have the server up and running in 3 minutes which was great"
