What I’m trying to do: Access a Droplet via the hostname. For example, when I create a new App, Digital Ocean automatically creates a Live App URL accessible via a dynamically provisioned hostname (e.g. my-app-name-ID.ondigitalocean.app). Is it possible to access a Droplet via a similar hostname?
What I’ve tried so far: From everything I’ve read, it looks like I need to associate the Droplet to a domain that I own, but am hoping I can leverage a subdomain that’s automatically created by Digital Ocean (as they do with Apps). Want to confirm this before I start jumping in and messing with DNS records.
