Can I be assured that the IPv4 address of my VPS will never change?

Hello,

Right now we are designing a product and I will be using DigitalOcean VPS for all the communication.

I will be hard coding the IP address in the product.

Can I be assured that my IPv4 address will not change?

Thank you and regards.

Hi there @Aerience,

Yes, each Droplet comes with one static IPv4 address that should not change.

However, I would strongly advise using a domain name rather than an IP. That way in case you need to switch the IP of your Droplet, you would only have to change the A record of your domain name rather than making the change to your code.

Hope that this helps!
Regards,
Bobby
