Hi, this seems like a small thing. Put up a maintenance page while I’m fiddling with my site.

In your experience what’s the best way to do this on DO?

Hello dear.

Change DNS to new IP?
Please run putty or ssh and connect to your server with root then

Use “PEERDNS=no”. This option will prevent /etc/resolv.conf from being modified by a DHCP server. So instead of using DHCP-provided DNS, you can specify any arbitrary DNS servers you want to use in /etc/resolv.conf.

The configuration file for your network interface (e.g., eth0) looks like the following.

sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf 

Press enter for continue
for delete u can use of x button on keyboard and then ESC after it use i for edit .conf file and after edit click Esc and then type :wq for save changes

2. Move IP to new Droplet?

Droplets—>click on the name of servers that you want to upgrade on downgrade it—>click on Destroy tab—->then click on Destroy blue button —>

After it you can create a new droplet just should select size ((everything that you want))+ same region*

Have a good day
