Hello and welcome to Digitalocean

You can do it but you don’t have to do it

Oh, then can I add how many domains? Can I add new domains to the same droplet and use the same IP droplet to differents domains?

You would just add each domain via the DNS link at top and point the domain to whichever IP or server you’d like.

Its possible to add multiple domains on your digitalocean account with no limit. To do this just

  • Add a new domain to the digitalocean domain management
  • Assign the nameservers of digitalocean (ns1/ns2/ns3), in your domain registrar control panel
  • Create the records you need inside the digitaloceans domain manager
  • For a webserver, configure your vhost so it handles the different domains. This configuration is different depending on the webserver you have.

Why I upload my files in /var/www/html and /var/www but nothing appears????

Hi nayara,

Check out Easy to install on a Digital Ocean droplet and makes setting up multiple domains / sites on a single droplet very easy. Digital Ocean also has a great tutorial for this I use this daily and am hosting about 7 sites with 7 domains no problem. Also is much more cost effective than running multiple droplets.

Any issues let me know
