    Does anyone know where I can purchase dedicated ip addresses? I want to pick them based on location (eg an ip address for Los Angeles CA or Brooklyn NY). I contacted my hosting provider (hostgator - I have a dedicated server with them) and they informed me that they are not able to do this.

    The reason I need to pick the ip addresses based on location is because I want to install open vpn software and permanently appear as though I am in that city and state.

    If anyone knows another way to accomplish this I am interested to know.

    It is possible to provide different IP address location wise, but it's difficult to assign IP address which define particular city. I think you should again contact your current service provider and ask them about alternative solution. I guess they are able to find out any optional way for you specific demand.

    I know someone who can provide you exactly what you need or you can simply do a search for Geo Location Servers
