Use multiple domains for the same website?

I recently decided to change the domain name of my website. I have a lot of links to my old domain name and i dont want to lose them. So I want my new domain and my old domain both to point to the same website. This is not hosting multiple websites in one droplet. This is adding two domains to a single website in a single droplet.

You can just point your new domain to the IP address of your droplet.

Maybe you also need to create a new vhost for your new domain.

Set the DNS for both of your domains to point to your droplet.

Then configure two virtual hosts as follows:

<VirtualHost YOUR_IP_HERE:80>
ServerName www.new-domain.com
...etc...
</VirtualHost>
<VirtualHost YOUR_IP_HERE:80>
ServerName www.old-domain.com
Redirect 301 / http://www.new-domain.com/
</VirtualHost>
