In this exciting new course, we show you how to host multiple domain names on a single Digital Ocean droplet. We will show you step-by-step how to configure a droplet with LAMP Stack on Ubuntu 18.04. This includes deploying a droplet, installing Ubuntu and all the components included in LAMP Stack including Apache, MySQL, PHP and PhpMyAdmin.
We also explore an exciting new feature offered by Digital Ocean, called "Floating IP's" which allow you to transfer IP's easily between multiple droplets.
After you understand the foundations of server configuration, we get into configuring Name Servers, DNS Zone Files and Virtual Hosts to host multiple domains from a single Virtual Server. You will have a thorough understanding of setting file permissions and developing an organized directory structure for all your websites.
We also show you how to configure an SSL certificate for each and every website that you host on your virtual server. For this part of the course we will be using Let's Encrypt. Let's Encrypt is a certificate authority that offers free SSL certificates, which are extremely simple to install and very secure.
You are welcome to use any hosting provider for this course, as the concepts can be easily implemented on any Virtual Server configured with the Ubuntu distribution.

You are an inspiration! Keep up the great content!
Fantastic! Just configured two sites on a digital ocean droplet!
Thank you soooo much, this saved me a ton of time. Tried a few tutorials and nothing worked, before I took this course.
So just to be clear, if I buy the Hostgator baby plan, thenI can install wordpress many times for separate websites and their logins?
Can I do this through my WordPress account?
Been searching for a good video on this for weeks! THANKS SO MUCH!! Explained everything to perfection!
it was Great
Will this work if I purchased the domains from godaddy and not hostgator?
Thank you so much for this course. I will have my first paying customer for a wordpress website. Your videos are so much of a help to a better future. Keep them coming.
Great teacher, thank you!
How would I set this up on vultr? Is it the same as Digital Ocean?
Awesome course, thank you!
Huge help for me, thanks!
Thanks for a great tutorial!
I configured two sites, but only one seems to be loading when I access it through Chrome.
Great course, as usual. Thanks.
The certbot will auto renew the SSL certificates right? I mean for each domain, not just one?
Tyler, Thanks for the video. ??I finally found the courage to jump into Wordpress and am interested in hosting several sites on ??a Hostgator server. Is there ever a point where the folder structure can get too complicated or cause a conflict between sites by doing this? I've also come across videos where people run several sites from a single installation of Wordpress. ??What's the best path to follow? ??Thanks for your help!
Please can you guys help me on this. I am stuck on the renewal part for SSL
I was looking for such a video for a long time. you're amazing Tyler
Do both domains need to be from same domain registrar?
Great for beginners, thanks!
Your videos are always very helpful.
Nice tutorial, very helpful, thank you!
thank you so much for your tutorial it really helped me. Even though i wasnt hosted on hostgator it still worked for me because i have the same CPanel. I'm really thankfull for all your tutorials, Keep doing what you are doing!
If my domain is with hostgator do I need to transfer to GoDaddy?
