Amazon Cloud (AWS) Elastic IP Addresses : Allocating , Releasing , Recovering an Elastic IP Address


What is AWS 

Elastic IP 

Addresses?

Elastic IP addresses are static IPv4 addresses designed for dynamic cloud computing.

Elastic IP address is the public IPv4 addresses that can connect to the Internet. If you do not have a public IPv4 address to the instance to connect the Elastic IP addresses and instances can communicate with the Internet.

Currently, Elastic IP not supporting addresses for IPv6.


Features of an Elastic IP address

To use an Elastic IP address, you first allocate one to your account, and then associate it with your instance or a network interface.

When you connect a Elastic IP address to an instance or a primary network interface, the public IPv4 address (if any) of the instance is re-released to the public public IPv4 address pool.
Public IPv4 addresses can not be reused, and public IPv4 addresses can not be converted to Elastic IP addresses.

You can disassociate an Elastic IP address from a resource, and reassociate it with a different resource. Any open connections to an instance continue to work for a time even after you disassociate its Elastic IP address and reassociate it with another instance.

A disassociated Elastic IP address remains allocated to your account until you explicitly release it.

To ensure efficient use of Elastic IP addresses, aws impose a small-hourly charge if an Elastic IP address is not associated with a running instance, or if it is associated with a stopped instance or an unattached network interface.  While your instance is running, you are not charged for one Elastic IP address associated with the instance, but you are charged for any additional Elastic IP addresses associated with the instance.

An Elastic IP address is for use in a specific region only.

When you associate an Elastic IP address with an instance that previously had a public IPv4 address, the public DNS hostname of the instance changes to match the Elastic IP address.

We resolve a public DNS hostname to the public IPv4 address or the Elastic IP address of the instance outside the network of the instance, and to the private IPv4 address of the instance from within the network of the instance.

When you allocate an Elastic IP address from an IP address pool that you have brought to your AWS account, it does not count toward your Elastic IP address limits.


To allocate an Elastic IP address from Amazon's pool of public IPv4 addresses using the console


Open the Amazon EC2 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/.

In the navigation pane, choose Elastic IPs.

Choose Allocate new address.

For IPv4 address pool, choose Amazon pool.

Choose Allocate, and close the confirmation screen.
To allocate an Elastic IP address from an IP address pool that you own using the console

Open the Amazon EC2 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/.

In the navigation pane, choose Elastic IPs.

Choose Allocate new address.
For IPv4 address pool, choose Owned by me and then select the IP address pool.

To see the IP address range of the selected address pool and the number of IP addresses already allocated from the address pool, see Address ranges.

For IPv4 address, do one of the following:

a. To let Amazon EC2 select an IP address from the address pool, choose No preference. 

b. To select a specific IP address from the address pool, choose Select an address and then type the IP address.

Choose Allocate, and close the confirmation screen.

To associate an Elastic IP address with an instance using the console

Open the Amazon EC2 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/.

In the navigation pane, choose Elastic IPs.

Select an Elastic IP address and choose ActionsAssociate address.

Select the instance from Instance and then choose Associate.


To release an Elastic IP address using the console

Open the Amazon EC2 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2/.

In the navigation pane, choose Elastic IPs.

Select the Elastic IP address, choose Actions, and then select Release addresses. Choose Release when prompted.


Recovering an Elastic IP Address

You cannot recover an Elastic IP address if it has been allocated to another AWS account, or if it will result in your exceeding your Elastic IP address limit.

You cannot recover tags associated with an Elastic IP address.

You can recover an Elastic IP address using the Amazon EC2 API or a command line tool only.


To recover an Elastic IP address using the command line

(AWS CLI) Use the allocate-address command and specify the IP address using the --address parameter.

aws ec2 allocate-address --domain vpc --address 203.0.113.3

(AWS Tools for Windows PowerShell) Use the New-EC2Address command and specify the IP address using the -Address parameter.

PS C:\> New-EC2Address -Address 203.0.113.3 -Domain vpc -Region us-east-1 




Limitation of Elastic IP.

By default, all AWS accounts are limited to five (5) Elastic IP addresses per region. because public (IPv4) internet addresses are a scarce public resource.
AWS strongly encourage you to use an Elastic IP address primarily for the ability to remap the address to another instance in the case of instance failure, and to use DNS hostnames for all other inter-node communication.
