Question

If a droplet fails due to hardware or node failure, is your IP address retained?

If a major incident or failure causes loss of a droplet, is your IP address retained? If not is there any way to retain it? The nature of my service makes it cumbersome and possibly disruptive to change IP address endpoints.
