How to correctly set domain redirections on LEMP?


New to the world of Droplets and not using UI like cPanel but so far getting on well!

I’ve got one droplet set up to host two small low traffic websites, I worked my way through the tutorial and went with LEMP over LAMP as it sounded like this fitted better.

Two domains are pointed at the droplet and work all apart from the following

If you type in you receive domain1's website

If you type in you receive domain2's website

The DNS settings seem correct, I have the following record set to allow the www.

Type CNAME / Hostname * / Value is an alias of / TTL43200

Any ideas or any places to start looking in would be much appreciated

It sounds like you may need to adjust your server blocks for these two domains. Can you share your configuration found in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled so we can take a closer look?
