Disclaimer

Our server’s IP may change at any time.

We do not recommend using this format unless it's absolutely necessary (e.g. if your application does not accept the default endpoint:port format).

For the IP:Port format you will need to ping the relevant server to retrieve the IP part. The ports remain the same as they were provided in the dashboard.
