I have a client who wants to take over the server (droplet). Is there an easy way to transfer the droplet from my account to his account?


  • Google brought me here while I was seeking an answer to the same question.

    No replies. Doh.

  • Can I transfer my Snapshot to another user?

    Yes. Under the Images page in the Control Panel, the "Snapshots" section shows each image created using DigitalOcean's manual snapshot feature.


    Simply select the transfer snapshot icon and enter the email address of the recipient. Upon clicking the transfer button, the sender will notice the icon turn blue, indicating that the snapshot is mid-transfer. When the user on the receiving end accepts, the sender will no longer have access to the image.


    As the receiver, you will have a new section on the Images page titled Pending Snapshot Transfer Requests. Here you'll be able to accept or decline the transfer request. If approved, the snapshot will disappear from the original user's account, as well as be added to your list of Snapshots where you'll have full control over the image.

Unless something changes, it is possible to transfer the server to another account, but you lose access to that server in the process. Refer to

digital ocean api + images/snapshots sharing between accounts = docker killer ? that'd even be production ready
