Domains under digitalocean

It would be great if we could simply create subdomains under a generic domain, something like: myfancyapp.digitalocean.io It could simplify creating POC.

        I would say that this should be automatic and default with every droplet created. When you spin up a droplet, a hash of its id should generate some kind of FQDN like

        l4t8nac46t7.digitalocean.io

        this will give an instantly available and useable FQDN (needed for things like SSL) and not just an IP address.

        Yes its really a great idea.

        I would prefer domains like below

        1. myfancyapp.digitalocean.io
        2. myfancyapp.ams3.digitalocean.io
        3. myfancyapp.do.io
        4. myfancyapp.ny.do.io
