  • Can i change IP address of a hosting server linux?

    Currently my server's ip address is blocked by a mail network so all mails went to spam box. I want to change this IP to another IP address. Is that possible? how can I do that? any suggestions?

    Hello Nikhil,

    Yes, it can be possible to change the mail server IP but you can ask your server provider to change or provide new/fresh IP,

    In this scenario, there is a possibility that you have sent bulk of emails that contains spam keywords and due to which that RBLs blacklisted your IP, that resulting in your mails getting rejected or going to the spam folder.

    Solutions could be check your email content before sending and it should not contain any spam keywords also you can use a third-party SMTP email service, if you want to do bulk or promotional emailing then you can use that because they maintain their IP reputations that help your emails going to Inbox folder.

      Hello Nikhil,

      Changing the IP address on a Linux system involves both changing the IP address using the ifconfig command and modifying the files that will make your change permanent. The process is very similar to the process you would follow on a Solaris system, except that a different set of files must be modified.
