Working with DNS Management

Time4VPS's DNS Manager allows you to easily set up your domain from the Time4VPS client area.

Setup

Before you get started, you do need to have the following:

• A Virtual Private Server (VPS) or Storage Server from Time4VPS. If you don’t have one, you can order and set one up in under a 5 minutes
• A registered domain name. As of yet, you cannot register a domain through Time4VPS.

Change Your Domain Name Servers

Access the control panel of your domain registrar and find the fields called “Name Server”.

Point your name servers to Time4VPS and fill in three name server fields. Once done, save your changes and exit.

The Time4VPS name servers are:

• ns1.time4vps.eu
• ns2.time4vps.eu

Although the name servers are visible through WHOIS, it may take an hour or two for the changes to be reflected on your site.

Configure your Domain

Now we need move into the Time4VPS client area.

Within the DNS Management section, click on Add Zone, and fill in the the domain name field and IP address of the server you want to connect it to. Note: The domain name does not have a www at the beginning.

DNS Management - Add Zone

You will reach a page where you can enter all of your site details.

Finish Up

Once you have filled in all of the required fields, your information will take a while to propagate, and the Name Server information will be automatically filled in. Your domain name name should be up and supported in a few hours.

You can confirm, after some time has passed, that the new host name has been registered by pinging it:

ping test.example.com

You should see something like:

# ping test.example.com
PING test.example.com (12.34.56.789) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 12.34.56.789: icmp_req=1 ttl=63 time=1.47 ms
64 bytes from 12.34.56.789: icmp_req=2 ttl=63 time=0.674 ms

You should also be able to access the site in the browser.
