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.
The DigitalOcean API lets you manage DigitalOcean resources programmatically using conventional HTTP requests. All the functionality available in the DigitalOcean Control Panel is also available through the API.
You can list, create, and delete VPC networks as well as add resources to them by sending requests to the API
/v2/vpc endpoint. Learn more in the VPC API documentation.
doctl is a command-line interface for the DigitalOcean API and supports many of the same actions.
Learn more in the
doctl documentation on VPC.
