How can I point and to a droplet’s ip address using records such as A and CNAME?

I have’s nameserver at the registrar changed to digitalocean’s NS; and the Apache vhost are configured appropriately to route the request. The problem is what setting do I change to get to the same droplet’s ip address where Apache’s vhost can route it?

Hey there! You will need to add the domain separately to your account, just like you added

You will also need to set the Nameservers on Registrar to DigitalOcean Nameservers.

And then you can point both websites to the same Droplet. If you have apache virtual hosts configured for both the domain on your Droplet, both the website will start loading once DNS propagation completes.

Don’t forget to add CNAME record for www.
Hostname: www
Is An Alias of : @

If there are additional questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to reply with them.

I didn’t see on the left side menu under “Manage” -> “Networking”, I can add additional domains. Thanks, mate
