Convert Droplet's IP to Floating IP

July 12, 2016 4.3k views

I’d like to use Floating IPs

But since I have tons of IP related stuff going around
I must keep using droplet’s old IP.
I’d like to use droplet’s own IP address as a Floating one. Is that possible?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to convert a Droplet’s IP to a Floating IP. I would suggest adding a Floating IP to that Droplet, and gradually transitioning to this new IP address which will not cause any downtime, as both IPs will be pointed to the Droplet at the same time.

Is this still a limit?

Vultr can convert any ip to a reserved/floating ip in about 5 seconds!
