Hello,

If you want to do only with DNS, you would need to use a subdomain, for example, blog.yourdomain.com and point the A record for this subdomain to the IP of your second droplet.

If you want to use subdirectories, you can do that with a reverse proxy setup. This would depend on whether you are using Apache or Nginx.

Here’s how to set that up for Nginx:

And here’s a guide for Apache as well:
