Example scenario:

I have several droplets for different customers. I want to “handover” a finished project (droplet) to a customer. I ask him to create a Digital Ocean account.

Can I transfer a droplet into his account?

  • That explains how to transfer a snapshot, not a droplet.

    • Hi there @rcsheets,

      You can’t directly transfer a Droplet, so you’ll need to create a snapshot of it. You can then transfer this snapshot to a new account and build a new Droplet from it.

      Hope that helps.

    • Hello, @rcsheets

      As per Matt’s reply you will need to create a snapshot of your droplet and then transfer the snapshot to the other account and create the droplet. You can check out the tutorial I’ve sent. Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.
