Question

Hosting sites anonymously on same droplet that hosts non-anonymous sites. Any way to get additional IP, mask IPs, etc?

I want to run multiple websites on the same Droplet. Some of them will be run under my real name, while others I want to keep anonymous. This is a problem, since hosting all the sites on the same IP will allow people to associate them with one another and potentially find my name.

Is there any way to work around this, besides setting up a completely different droplet for all sites I wish to run anonymously?

While it may be possible via the use of a VPN, or some other method it would likely be massively more complex to set up and administer. I would strongly recommend using a second droplet to host your anonymous sites separately from those associated with your name.
