Private Networking

DigitalOcean’s private networking creates a second network interface for Droplets that is unreachable from the internet. Private networking is useful when you want transfer data safely between servers or reduce outbound bandwidth usage, like when protecting database traffic or transferring log files to a central location. It’s available for all Droplets at no additional cost.

All of an account or team’s Droplets in the same datacenter can use private networking to communicate, and DigitalOcean Load Balancers will connect to backend Droplets with private networking enabled.
