Setting up of a static IP address

How to set static IP for VPS Windows

In the default setting, the IPv4 and IPv6 address is assigned to the server by the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). However, this protocol is not suitable for the server environment and therefore static IP addresses should be configured. Go back to the Server Manager and open the Local Server menu; then, select the Ethernet option by clicking on IPv4 address assigned by DHCP, IPv6 enabled.
