I’m new to VPS. I have a few domains that I would like to host on digitalocean. I read it’s possible but don’t know how. I have one rails app running (not correctly yet) at I just followed the setting up nginx for Rails app instructions. All I did was add the following to my server directive inside nginx.conf to get my rails up running:

    listen       80;
    passenger_enabled on;
    root /home/mike/www/rails_app/public;

I have no idea where to go next to set up my 2 other domains.
