How to reserve an IP address?

Reserve IP address

On E2E Networks Public Cloud (the services available via MyAccount portal), now you can reserve IP addresses. Reserving an IP address ensures that an IP address will be reserved for your account. You can assign a reserved IP address to any Node/resource depending on your requirements.

For example, you can dynamically update the backend resources of your applications and websites by re-assigning the reserved IP address without a downtime.

Since DNS propagation takes time when A records of a domain name are changed, reserving an IP address allows you to re-assign the IP address to a new resource without updating your domain name A records; this is useful especially when you are moving to a different Node series — for example, C2 series to Smart Dedicated series.

Reserving an IP address will cost ₹150 + GST per month. If you are a prepaid customer, infra credits will be deducted as soon as an IP address is reserved. If you are a postpaid customer, the relevant charges will be added to your monthly invoice.
