Hello @shadhinmusic

Yes you can achive this using snapshots. Snapshots are on-demand disk images of DigitalOcean Droplets and volumes saved to your account. Use them to create new Droplets and volumes with the same contents.

By default, a Droplet snapshot is only available in the region where it was created. If you want to use a snapshot to create Droplets in other regions, you need to add the snapshot to those regions first. It doesn’t cost more to add a snapshot to more regions.

Hi @shadhinmusic

For migrating the Droplet to another datacenter region, you need to create a snapshot of your Droplet and then create a new Droplet from the snapshot in the new datacenter region. during this process the IP address of the Droplet will be changed. Please refer here.
