Hey @webmaster225707,

All Droplets only get one public IPv4 address, but you also get up to 16 IPv6 addresses per droplet.

You can read more about IPv6 here:

Hello, Thanks for reaching out to DigitalOcean!

In general, the moment you create a Droplet, you will be assigned an Static IPv4 address automatically. Similarly, when you destroy the Droplet, the IP address will be disassociated and will join the IP pool table. There is no way you can have one more Static IP address to the Droplet on our platform.

However, you can use the provision of Floating IP on our platform. This allows you to assign one more IPv4 address and can also be moved between Droplets in same account. Refer to below links, which provides some insights on Floating IP:

You can also start using IPv6, request you to refer to below links:

Hope this helps!
