How do I transfer an IP address between droplets?
If I have a droplet with an IP address which is already in use and wish to create a new droplet and transfer the IP address to that, how do I do that safely?
Presumably two droplets can’t have the same IP address, and if I destroy the first droplet, doesn’t that release the IP address back to the pool of unused DO addresses, in which case it might get allocated to another account?
