Hi, I am in a stupid country inside fuxx firewall. I wanted to buy a VPS for doing VPN/proxy business. I am not sure how quickly can I change the server’s ip address once the ip address is blocked by the firewall. I need the answer in hours, for example 4 hours.

You can’t just change ip address, and why would you want to do that? spamming can cause account permanent suspension, not saying is the case but I see no real reason to change IP unless someone is doing something it shouldn’t.

Now you can create a new droplet with an image from your current one, that will grant you a new ip, also you can use a droplet from lets say NYC3 that has several IPV6 addresses, but you will still have one main ip address on your server that is used for outgoing traffic.

However much time it takes you to spin up a new droplet.
