Hi, @umwebscom

If your question is if you can host multiple websites on a single droplet, the answer is yes.

You can host multiple websites on one droplet by adding multiple Apache Virtual Hosts. Here’s a step by step article on how to do that:

Hope that this helps!

This tutorial will guide you through setting up multiple domains and websites using Apache virtual hosts on an Ubuntu 18.04 server. During this process, you’ll learn how to serve different content to different visitors depending on which domains they are requesting.
  • Helo @alexdo !

    Thanks for your reply.

    As you can see in your mentioned source “Step Five — Enable the New Virtual Host Files” it also says “disable the default site defined in 000-default.conf: ”
    but i don’t want to disable the default website. So, if i skip this step will my new sites still works? and old one too?
