Hi, I am doing a school group project. We had to make a LAMP droplet and we got the server working and all and already made a domain, etc. All this information is on my own personal account. I found out I can make my personal account into a team account. I saw this guide
state that it moves all resources over to the team account. I just want to make sure that it will move my project that I made the LAMP droplet on my personal over to the team account. I am just want to make sure I don’t lose anything. So to reiterate, when I make my PERSONAL ACCOUNT into a TEAM ACCOUNT, all my projects, droplets, etc will be fine? I just make my personal account have team account privileges?

Hi @llemmers1030. I can confirm, all your existing resources (droplets etc) will still exist on the team after you convert. Just to be safe though, you should make snapshot of your droplet before you update the account so you can make it again if needed ( Good luck on your project!

  • Thank you very much. One more thing, I had credit on my personal account that should also move to the team account correct? I assume yes because I see it on the billing of the team page. I thought I read somewhere that confirmed this, but I could not find it again. Sorry I just want to make sure there isn’t a glitch or anything. Thank you @rbrown

I believe so too. If not, feel free to email me ( and I will get it sorted.
