DigitalOcean floating IPs are publicly-accessible static IP addresses that you can assign to Droplets and instantly remap between other Droplets in the same datacenter. Implement a failover mechanism with floating IPs to build a high availability infrastructure.
Starting 1 July 2022, some of our pricing is changing. These changes will go into effect for the July bill which customers will receive in the 1 August invoice.
We are introducing a new $4 Droplet with 512MB memory, 10GB SSD Disk, 1 vCPU and 500GB of outbound data transfer.
We are simplifying pricing for DigitalOcean Kubernetes and some Managed Databases for better accuracy and predictibility.
Droplets, Snapshots, Load Balancers, Floating IPs, and Custom Images are increasing in price.
There is no change to pricing for Spaces, backups, volumes, DigitalOcean Container Registry, or App Platform. There are also no changes to inbound data transfer or bandwidth pricing.
This is our first major price change in 10 years, and we believe the new model better fits our understanding of our customers and the expanded breadth of our offerings. For a more detailed breakdown of the changes, see our blog post on our new pricing.
We have updated the Floating IP API responses to better align with our newer API models. The
region fields now use the same response models used in the
/v2/regions endpoints. Specifically:
private_networkingfeature is now displayed under the
dropletinstead of the
vpc_uuidfield now populates with the correct values.
basewhen the Droplet uses a base image (i.e. Ubuntu, CentOS).
networksfield now includes private and floating IP addresses, if applicable.
Unassigned floating IP charges will now appear on invoices. The first charge will appear on July 2020 invoices for all floating IPs that were not assigned to Droplets during the month of June.
