I am student I don’t know much about hosting. I want to host multiple sites on one droplet using docker.

My sites are…

2) Vanilla Forums ( Open Source Edition ) - on 1st Domain’s Sub Domain
3) Wordpress site with SSL Certificate - on 2nd Domain
4) Simple Nodejs script - on 3rd Domain

I follow following video which talks about “ How to Run Multiple WordPress Websites on Digital Ocean ”

But video is not talking about how host different containers and attach them to different domain names?
Please help me.
