I added ips in godaddy.com website (not control panel: I do not have a windows server 2008 control panel). And I added ip addresses using this tutorial:

http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/1478/adding-ip-addresses-to-your-windows-server-traditional



I am using windows server 2008 godaddy no control panel (so no support)

 netstat -an, ipconfig -all previously did not display the new ip addresses

After server restart only ipconfig -all displayed new ip addresses

Is there another test to determine if the new ip addresses have been added successfully?

netstat is used to see if there are active connections to your server, if you see the new ip's with ipconfig we can assume they are configured correctly.

Did you enable access to these IP-addresses (e.g open the necessary firewall ports to these new IP-addresses)?

Can you do a ping to these new addresses, either from the local server or from external?
If your ports are open you could try connecting to the new IP-addresses, e.g:

telnet new-ip-address 80
or
telnet new-ip-address 433

Or any other port that is reachable of course...

Sorry but you should have this thing clear out of your mind.

The article you posted is for Virtual private server.  Therefore, this is inside your LAN.

No server should be facing or have internet facing (Public) IP unless is a very specific environment an robust enough in security as it will be attacked from the internet.

If you want to have more IPs to access one or more servers in your environment these will be assigned to you by your ISP and a router for this purposes unless you have a multi-lan router and then you will configure your firewall accordingly; which means when a service is requesting one of those IP the device will forward it to the right machine on your LAN (NAT).

Instructions I found were dedicated server so your telnet instruction is best.

Thanks.
