Question

Can I take a snapshot of a droplet in one account and move it to another account and restore it?

I am doing some preliminary work for a company that does not yet have a D.O. account. After the company account is setup can I somehow transfer the droplet image that is under my account and restore it or whatever to their account? Take a snapshot or just move the droplet or …? Thanks

Hi there,

Yes fully agree with what Simon said. One thing to add is that after restoring the Droplet you will have a new IP address.

Yes, you can!

You can do a transfer request of a snapshot. See more https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/images/snapshots/how-to/change-owners/
