You can follow this article to migrate a Wordpress website from shared hosting to a DigitalOcean Droplet: How To Migrate WordPress from Shared Hosting to a Cloud Server with Zero Downtime.

If you're not migrating a Wordpress site, you can install a LAMP stack, migrate your MySQL database (you can skip step one and use a database dump from your shared hosting provider), and transfer your files to /var/www.
