AWS charge $0,005 per IP address per hour for all IPv4

The cloud company will start charging customers for public IPv4 addresses from next year, claiming it is forced to do so by their increasing scarcity but also to encourage the use of IPv6.


It's now been four years since we ran out of IPv4s for allocation, and since then, those who want a new public IPv4 address can get it, either from organizations that are closing or from those returning addresses they no longer need as they migrate to IPv6.

Αν πιστέψουμε το τμήμα cloud της , η δυσκολία απόκτησης δημόσιων διευθύνσεων IPv4 έχει οδηγήσει το κόστος απόκτησης μιας διεύθυνσης να αυξηθεί κατά περισσότερο από the last five years. "This change reflects our own costs and is also intended to encourage you to be a little more sparing with your use of public IPv4 addresses and consider accelerating your adoption of IPv6," writes AWS Chief Evangelist Jeff Barr, on the company blog.

The update will go into effect on February 1, 2024, and AWS customers will see a charge of $0,005 (half a cent) per IP address per hour for all public IPv4 addresses.

These charges will obviously apply whether the address is connected to a service or not, and like many AWS charges, seem trivial at first glance, but can add up over time, especially if a customer uses multiple IPv4 addresses.

These charges will apply to all AWS services, such as EC2, Relational Database Service (RDS), Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), and will apply to all AWS regions, the company said.

However, customers will not be charged for IP addresses they own and transfer to AWS using Amazon's BYOIP feature. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
