Question

Multiple sites on $5 droplet

Hey there,

Under a $5 Wordpress droplet how can I add multiple sites?

It’s WP specific. However when I create a new droplet I can only see one IP address there. I want 2 different wordpress websites under one droplet.

Is there a way to do this under the same droplet?

Hi @dobs93,

There is no need to have multiple IP addresses or multiple Droplets. You can have as many websites as you like under one droplet and IP address. This can be achieved by adding a configuration file to your Nginx/Apache service, depending on what you are using.

If you are using Apache, you can follow this tutorial to do so:

If you are using Nginx, you can follow this one:

Nginx is one of the most popular web servers in the world and is responsible for hosting some of the largest and highest-traffic sites on the internet. It is more resource-friendly than Apache in most cases and can be used as a web server or reverse proxy. In this guide, we'll discuss how to get Nginx installed on your Ubuntu 18.04 server.

Hi there,

In addition to what @KFSys already mentioned I could also suggest taking a look at this video demo here on how to do that as well:
