So far I was using the Digital Ocean’s Amsterdam location because it was the closest location to my country. However I want to relocate my account to an US location because we are moving to production and US is our main target. Is it possible to do that or I have to create new account?

Kind regards

To migrate your droplet, power it down and take a snapshot via the control panel. Then, make the snapshot globally accessible by clicking the globe icon. Restore that snapshot on a new droplet in a different DC to complete the migration (subject to remaining capacity in that DC).

Snapshot then enable geosnapshots, restore onto another.
