Additional IP addresses? Internal network IP addresses?

Is it possible to have multiple IP’s on the same server and is it possible to reach other instances on the private network using a private IP?

Hello, all

Another thing to mention is the usage of a Floating IPs.

A Floating IP is an IP address that can be instantly moved from one Droplet to another Droplet in the same datacenter.

Part of a highly available infrastructure is being able to immediately point an IP address to a redundant server. This is now possible with the addition of Floating IPs.

Floating IPs are free to use. However, due to the shortage of IPv4 addresses available, if you reserve an address but don’t assign it to a Droplet, we charge $0.006 per hour for each unassigned, reserved IP. (You can relinquish unused IPs from the control panel.) To keep billing simple, you will not be charged unless you accrue $1 or more.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

The day DigitalOcean offers additional IPs it will be nail in the coffin for companies like Linode! We manage over 30 servers that we would migrate here because it would cut costs in 1/2!! But IP = no go. <br> <br>Of course if Linode adds SSD options without increasing current pricing then since they already have much more to offer just from the GUI control panel alone and no IP limitations, Linode would be killer!

Is there any indication when you might offer the possibility of additional public IP addresses on a droplet? <br> <br>These are absolutely required to run mutiple SSL sites on an instance with a single SSL certificate, and to setup a website requiring mutile IP addresses to use multiple webserver programs — nginx for front page, images and static HTML, Apache for SSL private site and scripted content…
