This is really easy to setup. You need to access your Google Domains account and navigate to the DNS settings for your domain name. Then you need to locate the *A record * for the domain name and point the A record to the IP address of your droplet with DigitalOcean.

Basically you need to add the IP address of your DigitalOcean droplet in the field of the A record.
