now you can choose any name of your droplet. (ex.kali) and then click on the create button.

after click on the Create button, you will be able to see on your dashboard your VM is ready. you will also get to see the IP address of your VM Machine. 

now you can connect your VM via SSH with this IP address. I can use WSL to connect our VM.

ssh root@ip

after login to your VM, first you have to change your repositories. we will replace the repository with Kali repository. because we will install any tools that use Kali repository.
