Is actually quite simple. You can start by using the Wordpress one-click-installation image and from there just move your theme files and dump your database. Follow this tutorial and don’t worry about setting your domain yet. You can access your DO droplet through the IP address.

Once everything is set and good to go, you can setup your domain to point over to DO. Follow this tutorial to setup your domain.
