Is it OK to use Self-Hosted n8n only with IP Address?


I’d like to use my n8n on a linux server only with ip address. I dont need any domain.

I know that I cannot use ssl with ip addresses.

I’d like to know using only ip address for n8n would make a problem with authentication with google sheet for example or any other nodes?

Thank you!

Here are some answers from Google Cloud when creating OAuth Client ID to trigger google sheet updates.


it only accepts this type with ssl:


Hey @onurbolaca,

For Google services unless you are using localhost you need to use https and a valid domain, Luckily if you have a domain setting up SSL is fairly painless now and can be automated with services like Lets Encrypt.
