Hello,
We would like to set up different customers/Companies (not Users)in the same server (Create different Accounts).
Do we need to create a server per customer… umm ?

Hi @jlogreira,

You want to host multiple applications on the droplet is that it? If yes, than, yes it’s completely possible. Depending on your WebService you’ll just need to add another configuration file.

If it’s Nginx you can check the following article on how to add new configuration files:

If it’s Apache you can check the following article on how to add new vhost configuration files:

Nginx is one of the most popular web servers in the world and is responsible for hosting some of the largest and highest-traffic sites on the internet. It is more resource-friendly than Apache in most cases and can be used as a web server or reverse proxy. In this guide, we'll discuss how to get Nginx installed on your Ubuntu 18.04 server.
