Use a domain across multiple projects

I have several projects configured in DO, each representing an environment of my app (dev, staging, prod). I have one domain. I would like to set up DNS so that subdomains point at different environments (,,

I see in the DO dashboard where to add a domain, but it looks like it wants to associate a domain with an individual project. Is there a way to set up DNS so that one domain can be used across projects?

Hi @proconnectapp,

All you need to do is to create a subdomain and point it to your Droplet/Project. Associating the domain with a project won’t stop you from doing that so do not worry.

In regards to other configurations, please do let me know if you need any other assistance.

Hii @proconnectapp,

What webserver are you using, Apache or Nginx?

You can solve it using Virtualhost, basically it is a way to virtualize a host.

Hope that helps ;)
