Hi there,

I just came across this question. One way to do so is to first add your Domain name to your DigitalOcean account, then update your DNS records so that your A record points to the Droplet’s IP address.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

Once your DNS has been updated, then you can update your nameservers via your NameCheap account to the DigitalOcean nameservers:


Then once the nameservers have been updated, you might have to wait a couple of hours for the DNS to propagate over the Globe.
