What's the best solution to serve a WebGL application?

Hi, we want to host my WebGL application on DigitalOcean and we were wondering what is the best solution to do that? Should I set up a new droplet (we already have a few nodeJs apps running on droplets, accessible with an url like this “”) or a Space could do the trick?

The app is about 60MB.

Hi there!

I would personally go with a Droplet and Nginx installed on it or use the DigitalOcean App Platform instead:

Spaces are good for storing static files like audio, video, and images as well as large amounts of text rather than running apps on them.

Let me know if you have any questions!
