Hello I am new with Digital Ocean and want to know how to use different urls for different apps (please include nuxt.js). my backend will be an API that is why I need another domain. I know there is a feature on nuxt but I dont want the api to go down if the nuxt app goes down.

Hi there @23brewert,

What I could suggest here is using Nginx as a reverse proxy so that you could proxy the traffic to your different apps based on your domain names.

I could suggest starting with this article here on how to setup Node JS for production, you can follow Set Up Nginx as a Reverse Proxy Server step:

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
