Hello,

You can check this article on DigitalOcean website and see how the doctl is used:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-doctl-the-official-digitalocean-command-line-client

This is an example for creation of droplets:

For example, the following command creates a 64-bit Debian 8 Droplet named test with 1GB of memory, an SSH key, and backups enabled.

doctl compute droplet create test --size 1gb --image debian-8-x64 --region nyc1 --ssh-keys 4d:23:e6:e4:8c:17:d2:cf:89:47:36:b5:c7:33:40:4e --enable-backups

You can modify it to match your needs, e.g using Ubuntu and region Banglore:

doctl compute droplet create webserver01 --size 1gb --image ubuntu-18.04-x64 --region banglore

Let me know how it goes.
