Hi @vacancysarkari001,

DigitalOcean have a series of tutorials that cover the process of migrating from one Linux server to another which you can check here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorial_series/how-to-migrate-to-a-new-linux-server

In general, depending on your site/application you will need to spin up a droplet that matches your current hosting provider environment or at least is suitable for your app/site needs (e.g running the same PHP version). Then you need to migrate your data (files, users, database and etc).

Another option is to use the All-in-One WP Migration plugin, in case you are using WordPress that is. The plugin can handle the migration process on your behalf.

This article also covers the process, although it is outdated:

The final step will be to test everything and make sure it is working fine and then switch the DNS settings and push your site live from DigitalOcean.

Hope that this helps!
