Remember change IP address every time is not good for your application. Because it might be your IP address is internally bind with your application. Finally I want to say default public IP address provided by amazon changed when we stop or star our instance. But when we assign elastic ip address to instance then this IP address will not change. This IP address will become permanent public ip address of our instance. USE CASE OF ELASTIC IP ADDRESS ▪ We can use this elastic IP address with any instance according to our need. ▪ We can internally bind in our application because it’s always permanent.
