I’ve just launched a site on a DO droplet that has dozens of my other sites on it. I don’t recall promoting this site anywhere while I actively do with my other sites. I’m getting a few bots and some lucky guessers on this site yet and multiple direct visits from New York with the ISP Digital Ocean Inc. This can all be found in Google Analytics I’ve checked my much bigger and older sites that are hosted on this Droplet and none of them are getting any traffic at all from the office of DO.
How did they find out I’m making a new site? DNS? Nginx config? What is the purpose of visiting it? Just personal interest?
