DigitalOcean is not a domain registrar so you can't transfer your domain itself to DigitalOcean however you can transfer it to a registrar such as NameCheap, iWantMyName, Gandi, etc. and edit your domain's nameservers to point to DigitalOcean's nameservers.

Then you can point your domain to your droplet.
