You should move the domain over to Digital Ocean, (it would make this process easier to explain and guide you through)

Then you need to export your MySQL database (

And then move all your files over to a new server on Digital Ocean (

This would definitely be a project, there is no easy “attach to digital ocean” it would be a move to a new server for sure.

I would recommend, recreating the site on a Wordpress Droplet, and if there is a lot of content, work on moving that over to the new database.
