Hello, @eflchina

Yes you can install NextCloud on the same droplet. You can host multiple websites on one droplet by adding multiple Virtual Hosts. You just need to create additional virtual host for another domain name or install NextCloud in a subfolder so you can access it as you mentioned in your example:

If you’re using Apache you can check this tutorial:

And for Nginx you can check:

Step 5 – Setting Up Server Blocks (Recommended) it’s the one you need.

You can also check this tutorial which is still valid and should help you as well -

Hope this helps!

When using the Nginx web server, server blocks (similar to the virtual hosts in Apache) can be used to encapsulate configuration details and host more than one domain off of a single server. In this guide, we'll discuss how to configure server blocks in Nginx on an Ubuntu 16.04 server.
