I have 2 droplets on AMS1 region which are gonna be transfered to AMS2 as AMS1 is shuting down.

I'm wondering where is the manual option for transfering to AMS2 codebase and region (without IP change) ?

I want to do manual transfer so I can plan downtime needed for it.

To manually transfer a Droplet from one region to another, you would need to take a snapshot and recreate it in the new region. Unfortunately, your IP address will change using this method. For more info, check out this tutorial:

If you are interested in migrating your data between DigitalOcean datacenters, you can do so easily by transferring a snapshot of the Droplet between regions from the images page in the DigitalOcean control panel.
