Hi,

I currently have a blog that is hosted with another company and I need to transfer it to my DO VPS. How do I transfer the domain name?

Thanks!

You can export your blog database and template and import them to a new instalattion fo your blog in your VPS, once you get point to your VPS the domain name.

OK, great, thanks!

I believe you can’t host your domain with DO but you can update the nameserver so that it will point to your VPS. <br> <br>In your Domain Host control panel update your name servers to: <br> <br>NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM <br>NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM <br>NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM <br> <br>You can then set up the DNS settings in the DO DNS Menu in the Control Panel.
