Hetzner - UPCOMING CHANGES FOR LEGACY FLOATING IP PRICING
Today I received this email from Hetzner
UPCOMING CHANGES FOR LEGACY FLOATING IP PRICING
On the first of August 2021 we adjusted the price for newly created IPv4 Floating IPs, increasing it to €3€ (excl. VAT) per month. We did this to account for the increasing prices for buying and leasing IPv4 addresses which are driven by the global IPv4 shortage.
Unfortunately, we also need to apply this pricing to Floating IPs (IPv4) created before that date.
Starting on 1 January 2022, the price for all Floating IPs (IPv4) - regardless of when they were created - will be charged as stated below.
Product Price per month up until now Price per month, effective 1 Aug 2021
IPv4 1€ 3€ All prices excl. VAT.
After 1 January 2022, there will no longer be a price difference between Floating IPs created before and after 1 August 2021 and all Floating IPs will be priced the same.
We know that this will not be a popular step, however it is necessary to keep our calculations intact.
We are working on providing more options for managing IPv4 addresses in the future, including more flexibility for using primary Cloud Server IPs.
