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.
This article walks you through setting up the DNS for your site. The tutorial includes steps to set up an A records, point your nameservers, and provides some information about MX records.
