How to transfer domains to new droplet?

March 10, 2014 2.5k views
I have created a new droplet to make use of the new Singapore datacenter, and want to transfer my existing sites over. I have done everything apart from the DNS update, but how do I do this, as the nameservers will still be the same?

To clarify, I want to point a domain which was originally on a DO droplet, to a new one I have just set up. Thanks!
