Hello @pandacularmc

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change the Droplet IP address however this is a workaround. To receive a new IP address, take the following steps:

  1. Create a snapshot image of your Droplet from the control panel
  2. Create a new Droplet from your snapshot
  3. Move DNS from your original Droplet to the new Droplet
  4. Destroy your original Droplet

Documentation links How to create the snapshot

In the future, you can use a floating IP address, which can be unassigned and assigned to a different Droplet whenever required.
