React Static Website Main Link "/" Instead of "/index.html"

We are planning on use "Spaces Object Storage" to launch a static website created with create-react-app. Is there a way to set our initial route to "/" instead or "/index.html"- currently we are using react router and have to set it like below. If we try to host with "/" the site doesn't build correctly with Digital Ocean.

<Route path="/index.html" exact component={Home}/>

  • Hello,

    Are you using client-side routing?

    If yes, when there is a fresh page load for '/' the server looks for a file and does not find one, you would need to configure the application to respond to a request to '/' by serving 'index.html'.
