I have one domain and I’m running a couple of droplets, each one accessible through a different subdomain.
I would like to retrieve the domain name from the droplet itself. Is it possible?

Thanks in advance!

$ nslookup ip-addresss # should return the domain name. $ hostname -I # will return the list of ip addresses for the droplet

Hello @norike

Can you please confirm if you want to access the site/application using the domain name instead of the subdomain?
