Create Domains Without Providing an IP Address

New Domain resources can now be created via the DigitalOcean v2 API without providing an IP address. The previous behavior, which would automatically create an A record pointing to the apex domain, will be retained for backwards-compatibility when an IP address is provided.

This example demonstrates how to create a new domain without providing an IP address:

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer $DIGITALOCEAN_API_TOKEN" \
    -d '{"name":"example.com"}' \
    "https://api.digitalocean.com/v2/domains"
