Hi I am running an old lamp stack, I want to create a new droplet using the Apps. Will I get the same IP address? Thanks.

Basically I want to wipe my existing droplet, create a new one using the APP for a an ubuntu 18.04 lamp stack, but concerned as my domain is pointing to the ip of the existing droplet. so wondered if I would get the same IP address if I wiped the old one before creating the new one.

Nothing guarantees you get the same IP on the new droplet.


  • Thx for that goot to know, I suppose I will just need to repoint the DNS records when I do it, prefer a new clean install rather than upgrading in situ from the 16.04 lamp stack.
