Proxmox hosted on cloud server question...

Hey guys,

I just finished setting up Proxmox VE on my hosted cloud server and I was curious if I will absolutely need to have additional IPs for many of my web-facing services\containers?

The reason I ask is that my current host doesn't have any available and probably won't for a few months.

I was curious if there were other ways to do it... Like with domains instead of IPs since I have 400+ of those?

I doubt that would work since domains require IPs anyways.

Regardless, any feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks a lot fam!

And set up reverse proxy VM/LXC for your webservers so the requests to the different domains targeting the single public IP are forwarded to the correct private IPs of the VMs/LXCs running the webservers.
But you probably now that when hosting hundreds of domains ;)
