Suggestion for Vultr (or others with hourly billing)
It would help me out a lot if we could pay to reserve IP addresses to assign to our VMs. This would allow us to keep the IP permanently and give the ability to delete VMs and recreate them later with the same IP.
I don't know how much demand there is for this so posting this here to see how many others would be interested in this.
I am interested in doing things like run a VM for 8 hours each day. I could delete it and recreate it each day and select the same IP to be assigned to it. This would bring some of the more expensive plans into my budget since the cost would be 1/3 of what it would be to run it 24/7. For some uses I need to keep the same IP. So when we create a VM we'd be able to select from a list of IPs in our account (from that location).
Maybe not that feasible given the rules on IP usage with them running out but would love to see this happen if at all possible. I'd be fine with having to have the IP in use for a certain amount of hours each month or something to avoid people holding onto IPs that aren't being used.
