Yes, the same system, just another domain, different sites, but both on wordpress. But i would like this additional domain have also the https prefix. Is it possible? Do we have a orientation on to set up the certificate in this tutorial https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-nginx-server-blocks-virtual-hosts-on-ubuntu-16-04?

@Areku Well, it depends on what you’re hosting. If it’s the same system, just different domains, then it might be easier and beneficial to have everything in on server. But maybe you want to separate everything for security, legal or maybe accounting purposes, then you would use multiple servers. There’s no clear answer.
