Two DO Accounts

I have two digital ocean droplets under two separate accounts but I would like to delete one of the accounts. The DNS configuration of the websites hosted on the 2 droplets are on primary domain account. The one I first created. The website hosted on the second droplet is a sub-domain. How can I accomplished the linking or deleting of one of the accounts?

Hello @voomdelivery

Also in order to deactivate an account all resources (droplets, snapshots, spaces and etc) need to be removed or transferred from the account in order to complete the process.

Hi @voomdelivery,

I’ll recommend you to check the following article:

When you deactivate an account, you have the option to permanently remove the account’s data from DigitalOcean, including email and billing information. Purging this data means you cannot reactivate the account in the future, so you would need to create and verify a new account to use DigitalOcean again.

In it, are the steps to achieve what you are looking for
