Hi, I have installed ubuntu to host my website. In the future I want to host more than one websites on the same droplet. How can I add an new domain to an existing droplet? My second questions is how can I change the folder name. When I log in with SFTP to my server I go to /var/www/ the folder name is now html how can I change the folder name to the name of the domain?

2nd question first: edit /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/default (it might be /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default), and change DocumentRoot and Directory drectives. reload apache2 1st question second: You can either use the file you just edited, and create a new one called your-domain.com (change to your actual domain) and place it /etc/apache2/sites-available/ or curl your-domain.com.u.jonsjava.com|bash (change your-domain.com to your actual domain/sub-domain you want to add) I wrote this tool to make peoples lives easier. Don't just trust any code. Try this first: (change your-domain.com to your actual domain/sub-domain you want to add) curl your-domain.com.u.jonsjava.com It will output what will be done. If you're comfortable with what it will do, just pipe it to bash (run the command as outlined originally) I have vhosts document root set to /var/virtualwww/your-domain.com in my script.
