First time user - it figures...
« on: July 27, 2017, 06:01:19 AM »
Hi

I just rented a VPS with a2hosting. The installation of Centos Web Panel went well. My problem is - now - to direct my domais (mainly at godaddy) to the VPS.

My question is - if I may:

In the DNS configuration in godaddy, the A record must point to my IP, righ?

Now for the nameservers... are they the ones of a2hosting (dns1.name-services.com and dns2.name-services.com) or must I create my own (like ns1.mysite.com and ns2.mysite.com)? And what about the Centos Web panel DNS zone? The NSs are defined as ns1.centos-webpanel.com and ns2.centos-webpanel.com

I really need some help here...please.

Kind regards,

Kepler

Hi Kepler,

There are two options :-

1) Use domain registrar (Godaddy's) nameservers and just point MX and WWW A record to your server.

2) Create your own nameservers at both domain name registrar end (Godaddy) & server end.

ns1.mysite.com -->  1.2.3.4
ns2.mysite.com  --> 5.6.7.8

Once done then update ns1/ns2.mysite.com nameservers at Godaddy end and at your server instead of ns1.centos-webpanel.com and ns2.centos-webpanel.com

I hope it helps. :)
