Hi.Yesterday I removed my droplet accidently.
I should use that IP address for my business.

Can anyone help me to restore the IP address for my new droplet?

Hey @BraceLiu987

Sorry to hear that happened. Unfortunately it isn’t possible to get that IP address back after the droplet is deleted. Once a droplet is deleted the IP is returned to the pool of available IP’s and a new droplet would get it assigned. I’d recommend in the future using a Floating IP They aren’t removed when a droplet is deleted.

Hope it helps!

  • Hi Nate, Thanks for your quick reply. Actually I need that IP address for my business, there is any way to restore it with additional payment as well?

    Please help me.
