Hi @Gachapon,

The Guide that Bobby Iliev provided you with should be enough for you to install as many Ghost installations as you want and your Droplet can carry. Don’t worry about it being for Ubuntu 16.04 it should still do the trick.

One other thing I would recommend is to check the following tutorial :

It shows you how to install Ghost with Nginx already. It will allow you to host other websites not only Ghost installations.

This is a step-by-step guide and should work for all major Ubuntu versions.

Hope that this helps!
