I have a VDS server and a dedicated IP address. The question is how to add multiple sites in a single domain?
For example I have 3 sites as below:

  • www.company.co
  • www.webdesign.com
  • www.inet.com

This is a good tutorial on hosting multiple websites with apache2, note the use of a2ensite command over creating symlinks

In 000-default (usually in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default)

You can use the VirtualHost tag to separate different sites.

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/example1
    ServerName www1.example.com

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot /var/www/example2
    ServerName www2.example.com
