I’m not sure digital ocean really care about giving us multiple IP addresses. I only run few of mine here on DO and I run a hosting server on Amazon, bit expensive though compare to DO. but still OK. I would be really great at least like 2-4 IPs max is allowed for droplets over $40/m + or something like that.

Hi Jonathan, <br> <br>For SSL we’ll be writing up an article that will allow users to use a single public IP and multiple backend private IPs to be able to run multiple SSL sites via a reverse proxy through nginx to an Apache SSL backend. <br> <br>That way you won’t need to use multiple IPs for hosting as many SSL enabled sites as you like.

I’m surprised to see after 3 years of constant BS, digital ocean hasn’t implemented this (“due to the global shortage of IPs” is a straight-out lie: I can create two droplets, why can’t I create a droplet with two IPs?).

atlantic (which to be honest looks like a pixel-perfect rip-off of digital ocean) offers this feature, if anyone is interested.
