You can take a snapshot of your current droplet, create a new droplet off of that snapshot, and then modify your configuration files replacing your old domain with the new one. You might want to delete your existing MySQL data too. To do that, run the following command:

sudo apt-get purge mysql-server 'mysql-server-core-*'
sudo rm -rf /var/lib/mysql
sudo apt-get purge 

Then follow this tutorial to reinstall MySQL.
