I’m new with DigitalOcean and Wordpress, but I managed to build my wordpress based site guided with some tutorial on youtube and right now my site running smooth.
But I have a concern about accessing my site. Is there any way to access wordpress site not only by domain, but by ip address as well?
My wordpress is a marketplace wordpress, so I dont have any control panel to access it and no database as well.
Why I ask this, because I’m afraid I can’t access my website if my domain name expired due I will no longer have a plan to continue use it.
If we can’t do both, is there any way to access it by ip address?
I have read some articles said we can change the url of wordpress site to the ip address, but if that article was right, whic ip address I should use? IPv4 address of the droplet or floating IP?
With SSL installed on my site, I’m afraid if I change the url of wordpress to ip address, I can’t access my site. Am I wrong?
Any feedback is really appreciate and apologize if my English hard to understand.
