I have purchased a digital ocean droplet running Apache and have linked it with a domain example.com. Currently in some 11 digit IP address after type in the browser like 188.8.131.52 I can view the website and so can the public. My droplet is running on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. How would I go about only allowing access when typed in example.com and www.example.com but just make the browser keep on trying but be unable to access directly using the IP address? Thank you.
