Domain name mandatory from the beginning?

Posted July 2, 2014 1.9k views

Hi guys,

Is necessary to have a domain name right away when I’m creating the droplet? Isn’t it possible to access my Django apps using the ipadress in the url instead of a domain name?

I’m still in a development stage and don’t have a domain name defined yet.

Thanks and Regards,

No, you don’t need a domain name – you can access your apps using the IP address.

Thanks. Already created a droplet and I’m accessing it using only the IP Adress.
