Multiple Domains on VestaCP with CentOS

  • Posted May 12, 2014

I’m trying to set up multiple Domains on a single VestaCP Droplet, but I haven’t been able to do so yet. I was wondering if anyone knew how to properly setup the DNS settings from a Domain Register(I’m using GoDaddy). I’m not looking for anything like Vanity/Branding DNS, just proper DNS Settings so I can manage multiple Domains in VestaCP.

Thanks! I have two domains, lets call them and For both domains I’ve pointed their nameservers to & Now for some reason, only 1 of the Domains will connect when I visit their URLs. I’m wondering what I’m doing wrong here.

Vesta installs its own DNS server, it cannot add records to Digital Oceans automatically. You will need to manually copy the DNS records that Vesta creates into your DNS settings with Digital Ocean.

In Vesta, select the appropriate account, then click on DNS, and then click the “list X records” link for the domain. The go in to DO’s DNS settings, add a domain, and the copy each of the records vesta creates as equivalent records in the DO panel.

use only DNS at Digital Ocean, you don’t have to setup your DNS in VestaCP. I had 4 domain names on one vestacp and all have a standalone website.

I know nothing about Vesta, so I can’t advise you specifically on that. I use Virtualmin, which has some DNS functions, but I don’t use them. I use only DO’s DNS controls, and it all works great.

Hey Larry, <br>I am using &, that was a mistake in the comment. <br> <br>Do I have use both DO’s DNS Control Panel in conjunction with the Vesta DNS Control Panel, or am I able to just use Vesta’s DNS Control Panel?

First make sure you’re using the correct name servers. It’s - not <br>Once you have done that, you need to set up the appropriate records using the Digital Ocean DNS control panel - an A record at the very least. Just point it at your droplet. The control panel makes it easy.
