    Public IP

    How can a CVM without public IP access public network?

    If you did not purchase the public IP when purchasing the CVM or have returned the public IP, you can apply for an EIP on the EIP Console and bind it to your CVM to allow public network access.

    Can I change my public IP?

    You can change the public IP of your CVM. For more information on specific operations, please see Changing Instance Public IP.

    How do I keep a public IP unchanged?

    If you need to retain a specific public IP under your account, you can convert it to an EIP, which can be bound to the device and used to access the public network. This EIP will be retained under your account until you release it.
    For more information on the related operations, see EIP.

    Possible reasons include:

    • The CVM instance is shut down and incurs no charges when shut down.
    • The public IP of the CVM has been changed.
