Direct HTTP request to specific component in DO Apps platform

Also, is there a way to increase bandwith for an app with only a static site running?

Domain-based routing is planned but unfortunately it is not available at this time. Two separate apps is the best approach until that’s added.

There is only one plan for static sites so it’s not possible to increase the bandwidth allowance. Additional outbound data transfer will be charged at $0.10 per GiB extra in a month.

You should use separate apps. One tip is to use your static content calling your API, in a Free Plan to Static Site. In most cases, will solve your problem. ;)
