How to disable the starter domain in App Platform?

I’ve deployed a static site in App Platform with a custom domain.

The problem is that the starter domain provided by DO is still active, which creates a duplicate of the site.

Having duplicates of the same content is a big concern for SEO, so I’m wondering if there’s any way of disabling the starter domain or setting a 301 redirect to avoid indexing conflicts.
