Question

Can I have multiple domains with a Droplet?

Hi, I am very, very new to VPS, I’m just familiar with cPanel on some cheap web hosting companies. I have several domains that manage with just one account on Hostblast. I can have an unlimited number of web sites there, and although it is perhaps the slowest of the cheapest of the web hosting services, with just one account I can manage them all. I’ve been reading all I can in Digital Ocean and have the impression that for every new Domain Name or website I have to buy a new “Droplet” as they call it. My question is, can I have an unlimited number of websites and parked/hosted domains with just a cheapo $5 account or I have to pay every time that I want to add a new domain? In vpsfx for instance, they assured me I can do it.

Thank you a lot.

Hello, there+

If you are using Apache you could add a second Vhost, here’s a guide on how to do that:

If you are using Nginx, you need to add a second server block:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

please help me in this.

I too, would like to know how to do this without having the need for additional IP addresses. I know enough to be dangerous, but couldn’t figure this part out (at least by doing any web searches). Is there a good resource for this anywhere that I can glance at? Much appreciated in advance!
