You can host as many domains as you want on a single droplet. See How To Set Up Apache Virtual Hosts on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

The Apache web server is the most popular way to serve web content on the internet. Apache has the ability to serve multiple domains from a single server by using a mechanism called "virtual hosts". If a virtual host is configured correctly for each domain, the web server can correctly route traffic to the appropriate files based on the domain name requested. In this guide, we'll demonstrate how to configure Apache virtual hosts on an Ubuntu 14.04 VPS.

Thanks for you input and the link to how to set it up.
