Also-- if you’re transferring a server between regions, be sure to set it to global on the images page, so it’s available in all datacenters :)

You can create snapshot of your droplet in region A and then spin up a new instance in region B by specifying the snapshot you just created. Snapshots are available globally so you should be able to use it to clone droplets cross region. At least that is what I did in my setup. However, I am still new to Digital Ocean so there might be some other ways to do so. <br> <br>Here is the article from Digital Ocean talking about Snapshots and Backups and a quote from this article about what I just mentioned: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/digitalocean-backups-and-snapshots-explained <br> <br>“a snapshot taken of a New York based server can then be spun up on an Amsterdam droplet” <br> <br>Hope it helps.
