VPC How-Tos

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. Traffic within a VPC network doesn’t count against bandwidth usage.

Getting Started

Create a VPC and add resources like Droplets, load balancers, managed databases, and Kubernetes clusters to it.
Automatically add new resources to a VPC network when you create them.
Manually enable VPC networking on an existing Droplet.

VPC Network Management

Migrate existing Droplets and managed databases into and between VPC networks.
Set a default VPC for a datacenter region.
Configure a Droplet as a gateway that allows you to access your backend Droplets from the public internet.
Permanently delete VPC networks from your account.
