Let users have the ability to change IP after droplet created

One IP per droplet could be easily blocked by company, school, ISP, especially in China with the GFW.
Please offer a few IPs and could be changed when or after droplet created.Thanks.

    Thanks for inquiring about this, we aren't currently looking into providing this as a feature, however what you can do is take a snapshot of your droplet and then create a new droplet from that snapshot without destroying the old one. The new droplet will provide a new IP address and after you have confirmed that everything works as it should you can destroy the original droplet. Thanks, Moisey

    DO has "floating IP's" now which kind of relate to what you were requesting, FWIW :)

    Your server still needs to be offline which causes a downtime for your websites, highly inconvenient, especially when small snapshots like mine take 8 - 10 minutes to save.
