Question

Can I transfer my site from one Digital Ocean account to another?

Yes, I have hopefully an easy question. I work for a company and we are wanting to combine all of our sites, that are under several Digital Ocean accounts and combine them so they are all on one Digital Ocean account. Is that something I can do? Is there a way for me to pack up the websites that are on the droplet and place them onto one account? If so, how? They are all WordPress based sites and are live and I don’t want to lose anything or cause any issues for the sites.

Create a snapshot of the droplet, goto my snapshots and transfer the droplet to a email you provide.

Hi, @mross11

Currently, we do not support directly transferring Droplets between regions, users or accounts. However, It is possible to transfer Droplet Snapshots. If backups are enabled on your Droplet, you can convert a backup to a Snapshot. If not, you will need to manually create a Snapshot of your Droplet.

Creating a snapshot of your droplet:

Once the Snapshot has been created, you can add the Snapshot to alternate regions. After you’ve done so, you will have those regions as an option when creating a Droplet from the Snapshot.

For more information on transferring Snapshots between users or team accounts you can read here:

I figured it out. Thanks for all of your help.
