Setting Up a Droplet on Digital Ocean

The next order of business after securing a Domain Name was to set up a virtual machine or Droplet as its called in  Digital Ocean.

After checking out numerous options in the application tab, I created a MEAN instrumented Ubuntu instance.  This is very straightforward and just following the directions at Digital Ocean the process is painless.

The hostname is anything you choose, say; Test1.

The trickier part is to establish the DNS mapping. In the DNS tab I created a new record called test that was mapped to the digital ocean droplet's ip.

A few hours later it pinged fine.
