How can I move Droplets and Spaces from one account to another account?

At first We had one account on DigitalOcean but after expanding our teams now we have several accounts, each for specific services, but currently we need to move ownership of one Droplet and Space to other Account. Is there any possibility to do this?

Hi there,

To transfer a Droplet to another account, you can use a snapshot:

  1. Take a snapshot of the Droplet.

  2. Once complete, transfer the snapshot to a new owner. The new owner must accept the transfer.

  3. The new owner can then recreate the Droplet from the snapshot.

Regarding the Spaces transfer, the best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

In the meantime, you could use a tool like Transmit to transfer your files form one space to another:

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
