Want to join Digital Ocean

I want to join Digital Ocean’s Web Hosting. At this time, my site is running on other hosting, can I join this hosting? If yes, then what is the procedure? Currently, I have Cpanel installed, Will again I have to install it? and there are charges of Cpanel? And what is the total amount I have to pay to join Digital Ocean’s 5 $ plan, including all hidden charges like refundable money etc. Thank You

Again, it really depends on how you want to handle the migration. I’d suggest leaving the site available at your current hosting provider until you’ve gotten set up at DigitalOcean. Once the new site is up and running the way you want it, then you can switch over the DNS records to point to it and shut down the old site.

Sorry for asking so many questions. <br>What about my previous hosting? I can join your hosting right now without leaving previous one or I have to contact my current service providers to migrate my site from their servers?

Spinning up your first server on DigitalOcean is simple. Head over to: <br> <br>https://cloud.digitalocean.com/droplets/new <br> <br>Name your droplet, select a plan, select a operating system, and click create. <br> <br>Since you only pay for what you use, it is extremely cheap to create a new droplet just to get a feel for it and then destroy it when you’re done.
