Question

How do I restrict to a Vercel Now hosted deployment?

Hello! Just fired up a DigitalOcean managed MySQL database, and need to restrict to specific hosts that can access it. However I don’t think there’s a static IP or range they could potentially fire connections from. How do I access the managed db from a vercel now instance in this case?

Thanks @manuganji !

I got a private reply from Vercel support which confirms this. You can just restrict by ensuring you’re using a strong password in a private env file, rotating it frequently, and doing requests over SSL.
