This topic describes how to disassociate an elastic IP address (EIP) from a cloud resource when Internet access is no longer needed. An EIP that is disassociated from a cloud resource still incurs retention costs.


  1. Log on to the EIP console.
  2. In the upper-left corner, select the region where your EIP is created.
  3. On the Elastic IP Addresses page, find the EIP that you want to disassociate, and click Unbind in the Actions column.
  4. In the message that appears, click OK.
