Do you mean you have Dokku installed? If so, you don’t need to install a webserver, Dokku takes care of that.

I believe you have to install a web server such as Apache, nginx, tomcat or so on if you are going to host your domain(s) in order to run your website

look like you are new to these stuff and confused a little. <br> <br>ok, Apache is a web server. And yes, you need a VPS as you mentioned to run your domain. <br> <br>you can use one droplet to host multiple domains so there is no problem except that you need to know how much space and RAM you need for your applications to run. <br> <br>I hope that helps.
