Hi, I would like to set up a CDN. I'm curious how to do that with Digital Ocean?
...What do you mean?
You can create a main cluster which will point the request to the desired droplet (via private networking).
Read some articles about load balancing.
Do you want to operate a CDN in combination with your droplets (integrate it) or do you want to build a CDN with DigitalOcean?
If you need a CDN for a commercial website (production environment) then I recommend to buy the service. It's not worth to build your own CDN from a financial point of view. Some CDNs deliver traffic for $0.04/GB or lower (e.g. KeyCDN)
It will take more than just a few droplets to create a solid CDN.
a CDN for 25 in less than an hour

Are you asking about building your own CDN or using a ChecDN with DigitalOcean?
If you're looking to roll your own, the folks over at ScaleScale actually wrote a great article on setting one up on DigitalOcean using GeoDNS, Docker and Nginx. Check it out.
It depends. If you want to operate a CDN u could try it for free for a while. For example this one for 2 weeks, and check how it will cope with DigitalOcean
