I got a DigitalOcean coupon can I still use it? And is multiple sites possible?

I got a $100 DigitalOcean coupon from Github months ago. I was wondering if I can still use it? I cant test it because I need to activate via $5 PayPal. I have no problem doing that but if it doesnt work I would like my $5 PayPal back so is refunds possible?

Also can I host multiple wordpress sites on 1 VPS? Is there a tutorial somewhere? How many websites can I host on the $5 plan?

On your first question. I would recommend opening a ticket with our support team and they can answer that definitively. In general, coupon codes are valid for 1 year from when they are issued so if it has been less than that then there should not be any issue.

You receive full root access to each droplet you create so there is no limit to the number of sites you place on a droplet apart from the available disk space. Running WordPress on a 512MB droplet is not generally recommended but with a swap file it should not be a problem unless you are seeing a large amount of traffic.

If you start off with our WordPress one-click image, you can set up additional virtualhosts by following this tutorial.
