Setting up multiple sites on multiple subdomains

Posted February 27, 2020 426 views

I’m looking to consolidate my dev works into DigitalOcean. I have multiple demo sites (Wordpress, PHP, Nodejs) that I’ll need to use when I show clients samples.

What’s the best way to approach this? Is this a nginx solution?

I wish to have my wordpress or even static sites hosted like this.

For example

I don’t foresee a lot of traffic coming or even databases that increase overtime. I also wish to password protect this sites. For example only each pair of credentials can access each demos.

Should I use nginx to manage the domains and set passwords from there? Any advices or documentation can help.

I would use a subdomain.

You can use regex in your nginx conf setup to make this pretty dynamic;

server_name ~^((?<subdomain>.*)\.)?domain.tld$;


root /var/www/$subdomain/www;
