Dedicated IPv4 Address

Attach an IPv4 address to your database

The add-on is $4 per month - we're passing on the AWS costs to you. The add-on is available for all paid plans.

When is this add-on required?

This add-on is not required if any of these conditions are met

  • you are only connecting to the database via Supavisor, our connection pooler, or via any of our client libraries.
  • If you are connecting to the database directly and the network from which you are connecting to the database supports IPv6 addresses.

This add-on is only required if you are connecting to the database directly from an IPv6 incompatible network.

Enabling the add-on

You can enable the IPv4 add-on in your project add-on settings page.

Read Replicas

When the IPv4 add-on is enabled, an IPv4 address is provisioned for each database in your project.

By default, this is only the Primary database for your project. If Read replicas are being used, each replica also gets its own IPv4 address, with a corresponding $4 charge.


For regular use-cases like a restart or compute size changes, the IPv4 address remains unchanged. However, there are cases where maintaining the same IPv4 address isn't guaranteed. These include:

  • If the project gets paused and unpaused
  • If the add-on gets removed and added again
