I’m new to Digital Ocean. I set up a WordPress website on a droplet, attached it to a subdomain and secured it with let’s encrypt. I was impressed with the speed of the server compared to my current host, so I have re-built(and improved) my small business website in that new WordPress installation. I want to change my business domain so that it is pointing to the droplet IP address and encrypt it using let’s encrypt. The domain I want to use (and do own) is pointing to my old website at a hosing company. I can’t figure out quite how to do make this change. When I open the terminal using access, it seems to want to install a new instance of WordPress and I don’t want to risk overwriting the website. Suggestions?
