How to assign different ip addresses (static) to different programs

Hey guys, nice to meet you all!

I hope I have this thread in the right place but any-ways to my questions.
How would I go about assigning different ip addresses (static) to different programs? Ill give you an example of what I mean. There is a Popular game called Minecraft (I don't know if you have heard it before, but It might help if you do know about this game) but I am planing on hosting multiple minecraft servers on one server (machine). So how do I get more static ip addresses (on one machine) so I can host more than one server on one machine?

My next question, since minecraft uses the port : 25565 would I be able to host a website on the same static ip address as a minecraft server since websites use different ports?

If you guys could take the time to answer these questions I would appreciate that Very much, Thanks

=>yes you can! Ports are invented for that purpose.

A networkcard can have 2 or more ip-address but that's not what you want! And your provider gives you only 1 publicly accessible ip adress!

But you can change the portnumber the micraft server is listening to!

Configuration
● Open the server.properties file in a raw text editor such as Notepad.
If you don't have that file, use this one, and save it as server.properties in the folder of your server:

#Minecraft server properties
#Thu Aug 12 18:50:39 BST 2010
online-mode=true
server-ip=
server-port=25565
level-name=world

Ohhh ok I get it so I use that one ip address for everything but I just change the ports depending on what I want, eg: I could have a mail server, website, another random thing and a few minecraft servers on that one machine (providing I change the ports) right?
