How do I clone or make a copy of a Droplet?

To make a copy of a Droplet, first take a snapshot of the Droplet you want to copy. If you want the copied Droplet to be in a different datacenter than the original Droplet, make the snapshot available in that datacenter. Then, use the snapshot to create a new Droplet.

Snapshot a Droplet to save the contents of the Droplet’s disk.
Create a new Droplet from a snapshot or restore a Droplet to an older point in time.

You cannot create a Droplet with a smaller disk than the one you took the snapshot of.

The copied Droplet will have a new IP address. If you want to redirect a domain name from the original Droplet to the copied Droplet, you need to update its DNS records to point to the copied Droplet’s IP address.

You cannot change the frequency of Droplet backups, but you can use SnapShooter or the API to create daily snapshots of your Droplets.
You cannot undo restoring a Droplet from a backup, but you can use an existing snapshot to restore a Droplet to a previous point in time.
Take a snapshot of your Droplet and then create new Droplet from the snapsnot in the new datacenter.
