How to make a request from a different IP?
I have a droplet running an app that needs to make requests to an external API. I want this droplet to be able to make requests using a different IP.
Someone suggested buying a droplet, turning it off and using its IP. Is that possible? Can someone point me to some resources that explain how to do it? In case it’s relevant, I’m using Nginx, Node.js and Ubuntu.
Another naive implementation would be sending a request from the main app to a dummy droplet then have that droplet make the request to the external API.
