Multiple domains per droplet

I have been searching for a while so far I couldn’t find a straight answer.

Can you have multiple domains / subdomains per droplets or you can only have one domain associated per droplet?

If multiple domains are possible are there any references / tutorials that I could follow for directions?

To all helping, thank you in advance.

I have about 20 domains associated with a single droplet without any trouble. You should see a DNS menu item on the side bar where you can point any number of domains to any droplet you have.

Hi! I find this information useful.

But I have a question regarding adding a second domain. Since they both point to the same IP/Droplet. How can I distinguish the two domains ( apps ) ? Better yet, how can I point them to different ports?

Is it as simple as setting the domain’s IP with the PORT number?


So just to clarify this, one droplet = one IP address so if you have 20 domains sharing they are sharing the one IP address? Am I interpreting that correct or is there a way of assigning unique IP addresses in the DNS menu item?
