Hi, @sammaniamsamClam

In order to use your domain name with your DigitalOcean products, e.g your droplet/server you can either update the nameservers for the domain name to:

or simply modify the A record and point it to the IP address of your droplet. We don’t have a tutorial that covers the process for Hostmonster, but you can check our existing tutorial in order to see how it’s done for other providers, because the process is not different from that it’s just you’ll need to navigate in different panel:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
