Change IP of a droplet outside the range

October 24, 2014 1.2k views

I need to make a few VPN servers for my colleagues in China, Russia and Iran. Some of IPs should belong to US, some to EU. But it seems like your IPs are already blocked in some countries. Can I choose an unblocked IP outside of your IP pool?
My question is actually related to this question:

Unfortunately, we are not able to assign an IP from outside of our allocated ranges. If you're finding specific IPs are being blocked in those countries, you can try recreating the droplet to pick up a new one. The system will actually try to retain the IP for you, so create the new one before destroying the old one to ensure you get a new IP. There are different IP ranges in each of the datacenters so you can also try transferring to another region.
