    All VPS come with a dedicated IP, if it didn't, you wouldn't be able to use the server.

  5. I have seen plenty of cheap vps that come with an IPv6 address and a shared IPv4.
    But when purchasing a vps, rule of thumb is it's going to have its own IPv4 address unless specified otherwise.

    You can use whatever port you want if you have an IP on a VPS, just enter it in your server.properties on your MC server. 25565 is the default port.
     
  10. I think you're referring to a domain. A domain costs money, and is not provided when you buy a VPS.
     
  11. If you have the domain then no you'll just need a simple A record.

    Minecraft will look up the record from the domain and then take the IP and connect to it with the default port of 25565.
    So assuming you setup an A record for the domain and on the VPS with that IP the server is running on port 25565 then you wont need people to specify a port because minecraft will automatically connect on the 25565 port.

    I hope I've answered your question :)

  20. Does the VPS have a dedicated IP address?
    Each VPS has a public IPv4 and a public IPv6 address.

    Customers can order up to 16 additional geolocated IPv4 addresses on VPS Cloud at any time.
