Transfer project to a different account?

Hi guys,

Someone is interested in buying my small project. I have:

  • 1 droplet with Mongo
  • 2 Nodejs Apps on the App Platform
  • 1 domain

Is there an easy option to transfer all assets to a different account?

Hello there,

Although you can’t transfer a Droplet to another user directly, you can transfer a snapshot of a Droplet to another user, who can then recreate the Droplet from the snapshot.

  1. To transfer a Droplet using snapshots:

  2. Take a snapshot of the Droplet.

  3. Once complete, transfer the snapshot to a new owner. The new owner must accept the transfer.

The new owner can then recreate the Droplet from the snapshot.

You can check this article:


Hi @yosidahans,

You can check out the doc How do I transfer a Droplet to another user? for transfer a Droplet to another user directly.

Hope that helps you,
