    Record the IP of the droplet for use in third-party DNS configuration (if necessary).
  2. Secure the droplet.
    “How To Use SSH Keys with DigitalOcean Droplets”
    “How To Setup a Firewall with UFW on an Ubuntu and Debian Cloud Server”
    Allow SSH to avoid getting locked out of the droplet.
  3. Install the stack.
    “How To Install Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP (LEMP stack) in Ubuntu 16.04”
    “How to setup Let’s Encrypt for Nginx on Ubuntu 16.04”
