Hi

Using cPanel and WHM, we can manage everything well but

I see, there is many problems to manage a Droplets.

I can manage files using FTP client. No problem. I can install PHPmyAdmin to manage database. NO problem.

But there are some part so difficult:

How to add add-on domains in same Droplets ? How to add sub domains in same Droplets ? How Creating database, add database user, add user password, assign permission ? How to create FTP accounts? How to enable website optimization ? etc.

These are basic operations which we need to perform to manage a web hosting.

I am really so impressed by service of digitalocean.com. And i want to host my 3 domains here. But problem is, How will i manage them. I do not know much commands.

Is there any Simple UI to manage these stuff.

Thank you.

Thank you for great answer.

Today i have read all tutorials provided by you. Now i think, i can do these all. but it will take more time because i am new and doing first time.

There are many control panel options out there which you could choose to install on your droplet including cPanel/WHM (which would require a license from cPanel). I’ve provided links below to help you with the individual items you mentioned:

How to add add-on domains in same Droplets ? How to add sub domains in same Droplets ?

Both of these are done via virtualhosts:

and also require that you set up DNS entries for the domain or subdomain:

We have tutorials available on how to configure and manage your MySQL service:

How to create FTP accounts?

Droplets do not come with an FTP service by default as the protocol is inherently insecure. SFTP access is available on all droplets by default so you would just need to create a new user account on your droplet:
