Question

Correct setup for multiple domains pointing at one droplet

I have several domains pointing at one droplet for our company website. Currently which ever the domains you type in the site loads always showing the same domain, ie .com and .design domain loads .org in the browser.

I need to change which domain is shown as the default address, i want the .com address to be the address shown in the browser so if you type the other ones you are shown the .com.

My site is setup as a wordpress site and I tried changing the Website Site Url within wordpress but this didn’t stop the redirects happening (I dont have any redirects or forwards setup). ie site would still redirect to the .org address but now the css and images wouldn’t load as the links to the files had been changed to .com. As far as I know the only setup that I have done is point the 3 domains to the same droplet.

Was this the right approach but i need to allow more time for the changes and servers etc to reflect this or is there another way to achieve my goal.

Hi there @iamleeadamson,

In order to get this working, you need to configure your web server as well.

If you are using Apache, you need to follow this guide here on How To Set Up Apache Virtual Hosts on Ubuntu 16.04 and host multiple websites on one server:

Or if you are using Nginx, you need to follow this guide here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
