One of your competitors offers automatically created sub-domains for each VM
One of your competitors automatically creates sub-domains for each VM created through their service.
Do you already do this? I’ve been searching the docs and and questions and I cannot find any information about this, if so. Is there some API method which I need to invoke, or some setting I need to toggle to accomplish this?
This isn’t particularly useful for a long-term component, but it’s great for developing and testing SSL certificate configuration management automation, and so I’ve been spending money on your competitor’s service spinning these VMs up and down. Obviously I’d rather be giving you this business, because I like y'all.
