doctl compute reserved-ip create [flags]




Creates a new reserved IP address.

Reserved IP addresses can either be assigned to Droplets or held in the region they were created in on your account, but because of the IPv4 address shortage, unassigned reserved IP addresses incur charges.


The following example creates a reserved IP address in the nyc1 region and assigns it to a Droplet with the ID 386734086:

doctl compute reserved-ip create --region nyc1 --droplet-id 386734086


Option Description
--droplet-id The ID of the Droplet to assign the reserved IP to. Cannot be used with the --region flag.
Default: 0
--format Columns for output in a comma-separated list. Possible values: IP, Region, DropletID, DropletName, ProjectID.
--help , -h Help for this command
--no-header Return raw data with no headers
Default: false
--project-id The ID of the project to assign the IP address. When excluded, the address is assigned to your default project. When using the --droplet-id flag, it is assigned to the project containing the Droplet.
--region The region where to create the reserved IP address. Cannot be used with the --droplet-id flag.
Command Description
doctl compute reserved-ip Display commands to manage reserved IP addresses
