Hello, @4checkervn

In order to change your MX record you need to point the record back to Hostgator. If you do not remember the MX record value/content you can reach to their support team and they can assist you with this.

The A record needs to be pointed to the IP address of your droplet/server with Digital Ocean. If your site is already resolving/loading from your Digital Ocean droplet/server then you do not need to make any changes.

Hope this helps!
