Are there any plans for DO to enable backups feature for an existing droplet?

I really need the backup feature for my existing droplet. I don’t want to delete my existing droplet then create a new one from a snapshot. I’m afraid of losing the IP address.

Unfortunately, that’s not something on the near term road map right now. Though, it you destroy a droplet and recreate it in the same datacenter with the same hostname the system will try to reserve the IP address for you. If you open a support ticket and coordinate before hand with the team, they can ensure that the IP is reserved.
