Hi @dennylanga528,

Hello,

You can host multiple websites on one droplet by creating a LAMP stact server and then configuring multiple Apache Virtual Hosts. I’ll recommend using Ubuntu for this purpose.

Here is an article how to deploy LAMP on your Ubuntu droplet - https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-ubuntu-18-04

Here’s a step by step article on how to configure multiple Apache Virtual Hosts on Ubuntu:

Let me know if you have any questions.

The Apache web server is the most popular way to serve web content on the internet. Apache has the ability to serve multiple domains from a single server by using a mechanism called "virtual hosts". If a virtual host is configured correctly for each domain, the web server can correctly route traffic to the appropriate files based on the domain name requested. In this guide, we'll demonstrate how to configure Apache virtual hosts on an Ubuntu 16.04 server.
