Can I use my own IP (bring your own IP)

  • Posted August 6, 2014

Hello, I have a specific problem, I need a number of machines with fixed IPs. This machines will be used on and off every couples of weeks for 2-3 days. I have my own C class - can I use this IP on Digital Ocean servers ? If not, there is any way of getting permanent IP’s ? The end point that I need to reach has very strict firewall rules and I need to use all the time the same IP.

All droplets come with 1 static IPv4 address. As long as your droplet exists (regardless of whether it’s powered on or off), its IP address will be reserved to it. Keep in mind that you might lose your IP address if you destroy your droplet.

Unfortunately, you cannot use your own IPs on DigitalOcean.
