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.

Let me know how it goes! Regards, Bobby
