When using virtualhosts for each domain, do I need to create a DNS record for each site?

February 23, 2014 1.7k views
The DNS for my domain names are handled through my registrar, and when I make a new site, I point the @ A record and www CNAME to my droplet's IP address and then create a virtualhost for that domain on my droplet. Do I even need to do anything with DNS on my droplet when doing sites this way?

You just need to add the DNS records for @ and the subdomains you're going to use (usually "www"). You don't need to install a DNS server on your droplet if that's what you're asking.
