Hello! Noob question : Is it possible to make my droplet link look like www.example.com instead of : 162.193.0.1? Thanks! JL

Yes,

If you own a domain change the A record in your DNS providers information to point to your droplets IP. This would look like "@ 162.193.0.1". If you have not yet purchased a domain name please research providers and purchase a domain, then assign your IP to the A Record
Sure it is! If you have a domain name registered, you just need to set up the correct DNS records. Take a look at this tutorial to get started:
