Reserved IP Details

DigitalOcean Reserved IP addresses are a publicly-accessible static IP addresses. Assign and reassign reserved IP addresses to Droplets as needed, or implement a failover mechanism with reserved IPs to build a high availability infrastructure.

Reserved IPs let you redirect network traffic between any of your Droplets within the same datacenter. Assigning a reserved IP to a Droplet doesn’t replace or change its original public IP address.
Reserved IPs are free when assigned to a Droplet.
Reserved IPs are available in all datacenters. They are region-specific resources and can only be assigned to Droplets within the same datacenter.
