Question

Transfer Domain Name to Digital Ocean

I have a Domain Name that will expire soon(in 5 days time). The Domain was used to host a WordPress website.

Now, I have transitioned the Website into a Django application and will like to Host the Domain Name and the Application on Digital Ocean-- because the previous Host does not support Django Application.

How can I transfer that Domain Name to Digital Ocean?

Hi @cleangista,

Before we continue, let me clarify something just in case, DigitalOcean can’t renew your Domain as DigitalOcean is not a registrar. YOu’ll need to renew your Domain with your current registrar. Once you’ve done that, you can change your domain’s Nameservers to point to your DigitalOcean’s account and manage your DNS from here:

Next step would be to create a Droplet and host your Django application.

You can use the Django 1-click MarketPlace Droplet:

It will create a Droplet with all the required software installed and configured for Django to work, you’l just need to develop your app.
