Announcing IPv6 instance bundles and pricing update on Amazon Lightsail

Amazon Lightsail is the easiest way to get started on AWS, allowing you to get your application running on your own virtual server in a matter of minutes. Lightsail bundles all the resources you need like memory, vCPU, solid-state drive (SSD), and data transfer allowance into a predictable monthly price, so budgeting is easy and straightforward.

IPv6 instance bundles

Announcing the availability of new IPv6 instance bundles on Lightsail. With the new bundles, you can now create and use Lightsail instances without a public IPv4 address. These bundles include an IPv6 address for use cases that do not require a public IPv4 address. Both Linux and Windows IPv6 bundles are available. See the full list of Amazon Lightsail instance blueprints compatible with IPv6 instances. If you have existing Lightsail instances with a public IPv4 address, you can migrate the instance to IPv6-only in a couple of steps: Create a snapshot of an existing instance, then create a new instance from the snapshot and select IPv6-only networking when choosing your instance plan.

To learn more about IPv6 bundles, read Lightsail documentation.

IPv4 instance bundles

Lightsail will continue to offer bundles that include one public IPv4 address and IPv6 address. Following AWS’s announcement on public IPv4 address charge, the prices of Lightsail bundles offered with a public IPv4 address will reflect the charge associated with the public IPv4 address.

Revised prices for bundles that include a public IPv4 address will be effective on all new and existing Lightsail bundles starting May 1, 2024.
