Hi @chinyang13c,

What I can think of, is using a VPN to connect to this droplet. You can create an OpenVPN with DigitalOcean droplet and connect to in order to connect to what you need. Here are a couple of tutorials which might assist you in that

As for your initial request, I can’t think of a way as you’ll still be redirected to the server’s IP address. The VPN should work though.

OpenVPN is a full-featured, open-source Secure Socket Layer (SSL) VPN solution that accommodates a wide range of configurations. In this tutorial, you will set up an OpenVPN server on an Ubuntu 18.04 server and then configure access to it from Windows, OS X, iOS and/or Android devices. This tutorial will keep the installation and configuration steps as simple as possible for each of these setups.
  • nope I wont/cant download or use a VPN because its not my computer. And there has to be a way to do this, you can do something similar with nginx but it doesnt work with minecraft protocol only http
