Just point both the hosts through your DNS to same IP address. When the request will be received by your server it will look out for the enabled hosts on your server.

If you are using Apache on Ubuntu 12.04 then follow this guide

If you have trouble figuring it out, let me know. I would be happy to help you :]

You can host as many sites on a single droplet as you like. To do this you would create a DNS A record pointing the new domain or subdomain to your droplet’s IP address and configure a new virtualhost in your web server configuration. This tutorial will walk you through setting up a virtualhost configuration.
