I believe you can't host your domain with DO but you can update the nameserver so that it will point to your VPS.

In your Domain Host control panel update your name servers to:

NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM
NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM
NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM

You can then set up the DNS settings in the DO DNS Menu in the Control Panel.
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.
