Elastic IP – Allocate and Associate to your Instance

You should have a running instance in your aws account to allocate it an Elastic IP which does not allow your IP to get disconnected from your project.

It provides you with a static IP designed for dynamic cloud. If you don’t have an instance created then you should follow this link to create your own instance – CREATING AN AMAZON INSTANCE

To allocate an Elastic IP and associate it with an Amazon Web Services (AWS) instance, do the following steps:

  • Open the AWS Management Console, click the EC2 link.
