IP:Port format

Guide by Sjaak Alperstain

❗️

Disclaimer

Our server's IP may change at any time.


We do not recommend using this format unless it's absolutely necessary (for instance, 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.
