    DNS

    Can someone show me a tutorial on exactly how to point a domain name to my VPS? Not just a simple masked forwarding, I want it to actually point to my VPS so that basically http://domainname.com:port/dir is the same as http://MyVPS:port/dir


    I'm running Ubuntu & HyperVM, I really appreciate it!

    To be honest, I'm not sure. Try it. http://dedicatedot.info

    After you hit Go on your browser, It just points to my IP... But I want it to be http://dedicatedot.info after I hit the Go button on my browser.

    Right now the domain is pointing to IP 64.202.189.170.

    I presume that you are trying to point it to IP 208.110.91.93 (VPS).

    The whois info reveals your nameservers to be the following:

    Name Server:NS37.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
    Name Server:NS38.DOMAINCONTROL.COM

    Contact the other host and update your new IP in the DNS records.

    How do I change the name server to point to my box? I don't want DOMAINCONTROL.com

    And how do I set up DNS Name server on my Ubuntu box?

    login into your registrar and change your nameservers to pointing it into your server.

    next, you need to configure your dns server in your vps. you can using bind to configure your nameservers, after that don't forget to create your zones file

    Thank you, but I'm using Ubuntu. And also, will it require me to reboot or restart apache or sql? Because i have a game server running I don't want to restart the VPS after installing Blind...

    Sentono,

    DedicatedOT is running an Ubuntu server and your URL may not be that effective.

    Dear DedicatedOT,

    Follow the instructions at http://linux.justinhartman.com/DNS_I...up_using_BIND9 (for both Ubuntu and Debian).

    Once you create your private nameservers(say ns1.dedicatedot.info and ns2.dedicatedot.info), assign 2 IPs and contact your name registrar to register the new nameservers.

    Once the registration is complete, point the domain "dedicatedot.info" to the new NS

    there is nothing todo with apache and sql. i believe if you are using ubuntu there will be a simple way to install it.

    #apt-get install bind9*

    your bind config file will be /etc/bind/*
    your init file will be /etc/init.d/bind9 start|stop|restart

    It requires 2 IPs? So that means I gotta pay my VPS provider extra money for extra IP?
