Does CloudFront support static IP addresses?

Last updated: 2022-05-23

Can I associate a static IP address with my Amazon CloudFront distribution?

Resolution

CloudFront doesn't support assigning a static IP address to distributions.

When a user requests content from CloudFront, DNS returns 4 IP addresses of the edge location with the lowest latency. This allows content to be delivered with the best possible performance. Since edge locations are associated with different sets of IP addresses, you don't receive the same static address for your distribution when making a request.

The IP address that is returned for the edge location is allocated dynamically from the IP address ranges of CloudFront edge servers list.

The IP address ranges for CloudFront edge servers are subject to change. To be notified of IP address changes, subscribe to AWS Public IP Address Changes via Amazon SNS.
