Public IP address

By 3girlz ·
Is it a good idea to use 1 ip address for 2 websites, VPN tunnel as well as emails traffic.

Our company is having an issue with website slowness as well as email slowness on the OWA.

Would that be related to everything going through one ip.

Please assist.

Thanks

I don't think I'd put 2 websites on a single IP...you could run into all kinds of issues with domain name pointing.

Check your plan with the ISP....most Canadian business plans include 5....many people are unaware of that.

But for all sorts of considerations, i wouldn't share an IP between a public webserver and the private LAN/VPN.
