Question

How do I point multiple domain to a droplet's IP address?

How can I point www.foo.com and www.bar.com to a droplet’s ip address using records such as A and CNAME?

I have www.foo.com’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 www.bar.com to the same droplet’s ip address where Apache’s vhost can route it?

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

You will also need to set the bar.com 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 : @

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