Reserved IPs

DigitalOcean reserved IPs are publicly-accessible static IP addresses that you can assign to Droplets and instantly remap between other Droplets in the same datacenter. Implement a failover mechanism with reserved IPs to build a high availability infrastructure.

Note
The Floating IP service is now called Reserved IPs. The Reserved IP service retains the same functionality as the prior service.

Latest Updates

1 July 2022

  • The following pricing changes are now in effect:

    • A new $4 Droplet with 512MB of memory, 10GB of storage, 1 vCPU, and 500GB of outbound data transfer is now available in NYC1, FRA1, SFO3, SGP1, and AMS3. The slug is s-1vcpu-512mb-10gb.

    • We have simplified pricing for DigitalOcean Kubernetes and some Managed Databases for better accuracy and predictibility.

    • The prices of Droplets, Snapshots, Load Balancers, Reserved IPs, and Custom Images have increased.

    There is no change to pricing for Spaces, backups, volumes, DigitalOcean Container Registry, or App Platform. There are also no changes to inbound data transfer or bandwidth pricing.

    This is our first major price change in 10 years, and we believe the new model better fits our understanding of our customers and the expanded breadth of our offerings. For a more detailed breakdown of the changes, see our blog post on our new pricing.

16 June 2022

  • We have renamed the Floating IP product to Reserved IPs. The Reserved IP service retains the same functionality as the prior service.

    We have added new API endpoints and fields (reserved_ips) to reflect the name change, but the service’s original Floating IP endpoints and fields (floating_ips) will remain available until the fall of 2023. Please update any automation, scripts, or services that use these endpoints to reflect these changes.

    If you are using the Projects API to query Reserved IP resources, the endpoint still returns reserved IP addresses in the floating_ips field.
