Query raised to AWS Support:
Intend to create static IP. Five free already used. Need to know how to create additional static IP and their charges. Are these charges forfeited with my AWS credits?
Reply from AWS Support:
Thank you for reaching AWS Premium Support. I am Vishnu from Linux team and will be assisting you further with this case.
From the description, I understand that you would like to know how to create additional static IP addresses and their charges. Please feel free to correct me if I misunderstood your requirement in any way.
Kindly note that, there is no additional cost for increasing Static IP address limit. By default, all AWS accounts are limited to five Static IP addresses per Region, because public (IPv4) internet addresses are a scarce public resource. You can create a request directly from AWS console to increase the limit of Lightsail Static IP addresses in a region. Please use below link for the same.
Here you need to specify the “Region” and the new static IP address limit value with a clear Use case description. Once the request is submitted, our internal teams will review it and reach you with a confirmation on the same. If you require our assistance for creating the request, we can also create the request on behalf of you. In that case, kindly share the region, new static IP address limit value and a clear Use case description so that we can reach our internal teams with the request on your behalf.
