Hi @lindryjones

DigitalOcean only supports Linux machines. Having said that, while it’s not a native thing to Linux distributions, you can host ASP.NET applications with a little configuration. DigitalOcean have created a tutorial on how to use ASP.NET with MySQL on Ubuntu which you can check here:

As for your second question, sadly you can’t use Microsoft SQL Server on a Linux machine.

Yes, you can create different Droplets and host different websites on each Droplet depending on your needs.

For example, in your case, you could create a new Droplet and then point your subdomain name’s A record to the Droplet IP address:

Regarding the Microsoft SQL Server 2019, this is currently not offered as a managed solution, but you should be able to install it on an Ubuntu server as per the official documentation here:

Hope that this help!
