a string for my droplet's IP address

How can I redirect my droplet’s IP to a namespace without creating a DNS record, i.e. without a link to an existing domain name.

I test and explore DO droplets and to mimic the production phase I wish to point my droplet’s to a string which isn’t associate with any domaine name. ex: <my_droplet_name>

Thanks for your consideration.
