What is a Static Public IP?

Creating an instance with a Static Public IP means that the public IPv4 address assigned to the instance upon creation will not change during the lifetime of the instance. Specifically, if you stop and start the instance again, it will be retain the same public IPv4 address it had originally. Private IPv4 address will not stay the same when stopping and starting an instance.



Why use a Static Public IP?

Using a Static Public IP can be useful with implementations where another application directly connects to an instance that is regularly stopped and started.
