Offer to choose the IP geolocation (European datacenters)

Even if the servers are located in Amsterdam, we should be able to choose an IP from France, Germany, Spain, etc.
It is very important for search engines.

OVH.com has offered this feature for several years for free.

In Europe, IP geolocation is really important because most websites target one single country.

    Unfortunately when a datacenter is opened the IPs are assigned to that DC and inherit the Geo location of that facility so this wouldn't be possible. We are looking to open up more datacenters across Europe with the next location being the UK. Thanks, Moisey

    No I do not mean Geo DNS. This suggestion is about being able to attribute an IP from France or Germany to a Droplet from AMS. This way we could host a website in Amsterdam but target another European country.

    Do you mean the GEO DNS? If so, please vote for the suggestion I made in this regard.
