Hi @sharsh2106,

If it was me, I’ll deploy it directly using Nginx. For me, it’s straightforward and easier to deploy that way not to mention how easier it is to troubleshoot any issues that might arise.

Now, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do it with a Docker image, on theory it should be faster to deploy that way but this is rarely the case.

As for the droplets and their setup, I believe what you’ve decided to use is pretty good and should stick to it!

All in all, you should use the most convenient method for you, in the end the outcome is the same.
