I am trying to migrate my current website to DO. The migration is probably going to take several days. During these days, I want my host name to point to the old server. However, when I try to create a droplet in DO, I am asked to provide the host name.
I would like to create a droplet without a hostname, access it via its IP address, and check that it is working OK, before I migrate my hostname to DO. Is this possible?
