Which IP do i use in my DNS settings? Floating or IPv4?

I’ve set up a floating IP for my droplet. I don’t know if that was necessary. Do I use now use this floating IP in my DNS settings or keep the original IPv4? I’m trying to set up certbot.

Hello @transat

You can use Droplet IP address or Floating IP to generate the SSL certificate and it should work in both cases. However, I would recommend you to set up using a Floating IP address because this IP address is reserved and can be moved between Droplet in case of any disaster or major issues with Droplet.
