How to point my Next.js static page deployed on the App Platform to my root domain?


I have deployed a static site on the App Platform and I have it’s provided link Also, I have added my domain to digital ocean. My question is - how do I point my root domain to my deployed static site? I can not add A record because it needs an existing droplet or custom IP and I only have the provided link above or if I try to use it in the CNAME record, I can not leave the Hostname field empty so that it would target the root of my domain.

Thank you!
