Reserved IPs Pricing

A DigitalOcean Reserved IP address is a publicly-accessible static IP address that you can assign to a Droplet and then reassign to another Droplet later, as needed. You can implement a failover mechanism with reserved IPs to build a high availability infrastructure.

Note
The Floating IP service is now called Reserved IPs. The Reserved IP service retains the same functionality as the prior service.

Reserved IPs are free when assigned to a Droplet.

Reserved IPs cost $5.00 per month ( $0.00744 per hour) when reserved but not assigned to a Droplet, due to the shortage of available IPv4 addresses. You are not billed unless you accrue $1 or more per reserved IP.
