How do i use nginx to host multiple applications on one droplet? ie 2 ghost blogs and 1 php website

How do I use nginx to serve up multiple applications on one droplet.

Ex. I make 1 droplet ( because I only can afford one droplet )

Use nginx to serve up three applications like Two ghost instances and 1 php application ( made by yours truly ).

Is this even possible?

I’ve read I can use nginx as a reverse proxy ( this was only one idea, but I wasn’t sure how to implement this for multiple applications on one droplet )
