Secure and control the traffic to your applications with private networking, traffic filtering, and load balancing.

Manage DNS for Droplets, DigitalOcean Load Balancers, and non-DigitalOcean resources all in the same place.
DigitalOcean Reserved IPs are publicly-accessible static IP address that you can assign to Droplets and instantly remap to other Droplets in the same datacenter.
Load balancers distribute traffic across pools of Droplets for high availability setups.
Restrict traffic with network-based, stateful firewalls for Droplets.
Compared to IPv4, IPv6 provides a larger address space, increased security, and other benefits. Enable IPv6 on a Droplet to gain access to its 16 configurable IPv6 addresses.
A Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is a private network interface for collections of DigitalOcean resources. VPC networks provide a more secure connection between resources because the network is inaccessible from the public internet and other VPC networks.
