Reserve Google Cloud Static IP Address – How to perform it

by | May 20, 2021

Once we deploy a website on Google Cloud Platform, the next step is to reserve Google Cloud static IP address.

The majority of the technical issues by Google Cloud Platform users occur because of user’s failure to reserve a static IP address for their website.

As part of our Google Cloud Platform Services, we assist our customers with several Google Cloud queries.

Today, let us see how to perform this task.


Reserve Google Cloud Static IP Address

Generally, there will be a website deployed on Google Cloud Platform Compute Engine.

When it comes to reserver there are 2 methods:

1. Reserve an Existing IP Address
2. Reserve a New IP Address

Reserve an Existing IP Address

From the Google Cloud Platform dashboard, we navigate to Networking >> External IP addresses.

Reserve Google Cloud Static IP Address

Suppose we have a configured the website already. Then we click the down arrow under the Type column and select Static for the External IP address that connects to our instance.

Our Support Techs recommend this method.

Reserve a New IP Address

From the Google Cloud Platform dashboard, we navigate to Networking >> External IP addresses.

Suppose we need to reserve a new static IP address for our instance. Then instead of using the existing one, we click the RESERVE STATIC ADDRESS button.

In addition, if we choose this option, we ensure the IP address matches the IP address in our website’s DNS records.

We configure the settings, make sure to attach the static IP address to the correct instance, then click the Reserve button.


Depending on Google Cloud configuration, External IP Addresses may locate either under VPC Network > External IP addresses or Networking > External IP Addresses.

It is possible for us to not find the option Networking > External IP addresses. In such a case, we make sure to use VPC Network > External IP addresses.

By reserving a Static IP Address, we prevent our site from breaking after server outages or restarts.
