Question

Is there a private IP address on a Spaces Object Storage?

I have read the documentation on the Spaces , can’t find anything about private IP address on a Spaces Object Storage. As you know that , the data transfer from a Droplet to Spaces Object Storage is free in the same region.But you count the out the data on Droplets’ outbound transfer.

  • If there is a private ip address on a Spaces Object Storage , so that I transfer files from a Droplet to Space will not use public data, and the fee is free.
  • Is DigitalOcean support this ?

As of now, Spaces doesn’t support the use of private IP addresses, and all data transferred to Spaces uses public data. However, you’re correct that data transfer between a Droplet and Spaces Object Storage within the same region is free of charge.

Please keep in mind that the cost for Spaces includes the pricing for stored data as well as all outgoing transfers. Check out the most up-to-date pricing at https://digitalocean.com/pricing.

Hey @giantdarkcyaneel,

Indeed, data transfer within the same region between Droplets and Spaces is not billed separately. But Spaces do not come with private network interfaces as of the time being.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.
