Can I use my own IP addresses?

I own a class C block of public IP addresses that were registered back in the 1990’s. How can I have those routed to my droplets instead of using those supplied by Digital Ocean?

We don’t support importing your own IP addresses so this won’t be possible as of now. If you find that this is a feature that you’d want us to support, I’d recommend finding an entry that covers your ask or creating one that articulates your needs at the following page so we can understand community support as well as getting that information in front of our engineering teams:
