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: <br> <br>https://digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-host-name-with-digitalocean <br> <br>Let us know how it goes!

Yes, <br> <br>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
