Hello, @mzahwe

We have a series of tutorials that cover the process of migrating from one Linux server to another which you can check here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorial_series/how-to-migrate-to-a-new-linux-server

In general, depending on your site/application you will need to spin up a droplet that matches your current hosting provider environment or at least is suitable for your app/site needs (e.g running the same PHP version). Then you need to migrate your data (files, users, database and etc).

The final step will be to test everything and make sure it is working fine and then switch the DNS settings and push your site live from DigitalOcean.

Hope that this helps!

Alex
