unfortunately, the main IP of the VPS will always be French or Canadian, depending on the datacentre where the VPS is on.

The extra UK IP is normally used for geolocalisation purposes, not sure what the gameserver flag come from and how it detects the localisation.

Thanks.

As I said, even when the WHOIS information says UK, a geoip database, which is out of OVH control, may track the server to FR by various means: route analysis, manual validation, etc. And there's nothing that can be done about that. When OVH offers you a geolocated IP, they mean only the WHOIS information. No provider can do much more.

Ok I got one but my game server is still showing with french flag when I want UK flag.

Is there anything I must do? I want UK flag to show for my game server.

You'd have to order an additional IP which is only possible on the VPS Cloud.
