Question

Does Digital Ocean allows installing external python modules?

I am building a scraper to scrap some cloudflare protected sites using python, but after few successful scraping attempts cloudflare shows Captcha page. I wanted to know if Digital Ocean allows to run python using a cron job and change its ip time to time so that ip do not get blocked or detected as Bot.

Yes you can install external python modules and set up cron jobs to schedule their execution but you cannot change your droplet’s IP address from time to time directly.
