Adding Domain

How do we add domains on the standard vpn

Comments

    To be clear our VPN services can not have domains added to them. But if you are talking about our Standard VPS services, which are listed on our webpage, then everything depends on what OS you have installed.

    If VPS use specific control panel, domain can be added through it. If it does not use control panel, but use regular OS distribution instead, then you should edit webserver configuration file with adding information about new virtual host that is linked with your domain.

    So, we need to:
    - buy a domain name from somewhere else
    - with a regular os, change the configuration file to use the domain name buyed

    Newbie question here:
    How to setup the configuration file for Ubuntu 16.04 64bit(standard VPS) to use the domain name buyed (websitename.com) in order to be accesed by users from the world wide web?

    With standard VPS we can host websites, no?

    Thank you in advance for your answer,
    Alin

    Hello Alin,

    if you would like to buy a domain and host it on our server, the basic steps would be the following:

    1) Buy a domain and VPS;
    2) Install the preferred OS;
    3) Point your domain to VPS via DNS;
    4) Then you will need to configure Apache's virtual host file and add your domain in the configuration;
    5) Upload the website files into "DocumentRoot" directory, which is usually something like "/var/www".

    We do not have any such instruction specifically, because it is not considered as very difficult task considering we provide self-managed VPS, but we will think of adding such tutorial in the future.
    If you have some troubles following these guidelines, you may contact us directly and our team will be able to explain the specific point more.
