Hosting multiple sites on a single droplet is absolutely possible, follows best practices and should not have any negative affect on SEO. This is generally done with a virtualhost configuration in your web server. This way the web server checks what domain is being requested and serves the correct content.

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.
