Hi there,

Yes, you can run your own VPN service on DigitalOcean. For example, you could install OpenVPN with 1-Click using the image here:

For more 1-Click VPN installations, you could take a look at the following page:

Hope that this helps!




  • You create the VPN server on DigitaOcean using OpenVPN
  • Through your app, you connect to the VPN

If you want to have multiple VPN in different countries, you can create your droplets in those regions.

Then you can have the option in your app to connect to whichever one to use.
