How to order a flexible IP for Bare Metal Cloud Servers

Reviewed on 26 May 2021Published on 26 May 2021

Flexible IP addresses are additional IP addresses, available for Bare Metal Cloud Servers. They allow you to move an IP from one server to another without changing your whole configuration. Flexible IPs can also be used as additional IP addresses to create virtual machines on your Bare Metal Cloud Server.


Note that Scaleway offers flexible IPs for Bare Metal servers, Instances and Public Gateways. Each of these sets of flexible IPs is independent, and usable only with that product. Instance flexible IPs cannot be attached to Bare Metal servers or Public Gateways, and vice versa.

  1. Click Bare Metal in the Compute section of the Scaleway Console side menu. The Bare Metal dashboard displays.

  2. Click the Flexible IP tab at the top of the page.

  3. Click + Order a flexible IP. The order dialog displays.

  4. Optionally you can enter a description and tags to facilitate the management of your flexible IPs. Tags allow you to filter IP addresses from the Scaleway console. Once done, confirm the order by clicking Order a flexible IP.

The flexible IP is assigned to your account and displays in the list of your Bare Metal flexible IPs:
