How to get a new floating IP?

Hi, as I was experimenting the floating IP, when a floating IP was deleted, and I create another floating IP right away on the same droplet, there is a great chance I get the same IP address. Region is NYC1.

I’m wondering if there is a way to force a new address?

If not, how long do I need to wait before getting a new floating IP?

Hello @pangzi

If you wish to have a different Floating IP address then you can try this workaround. You have to first create the additional Floating IP address and delete the existing Floating Ip address then assign a new Floating IP address to the Droplet.

Create Floating IP address

Delete Floating IP address

Assign Floating IP address
