Can I use a single DigitalOcean Droplet to host multiple wordpress, node.js, and other apps
Currently, I have several WordPress sites hosted with Bluehost and Node.js apps hosted with Heroku. I am also working on some Python development that will eventually need to be hosted. Generally, these sites and apps are very low traffic.
I would like to be able to manage these different sites/apps from a single location, as well as save on hosting costs.
Is this possible with DigitalOcean? Are there other options that you would recommend? Specifically:
- Can a single DigitalOcean droplet host sites/apps with different server-side languages (including full CMS’ like WordPress)?
- If yes, how difficult is this to configure and manage?
- Would this configuration translate to savings on hosting costs?
- Are there solutions other than DigitalOcean that would address this problem more effectively (Bluehost? AWS?) And does anyone have experience doing this with different services and the pros/cons of each?
Thank you for any answers, tips, recommendations, or links to useful resources!!
