    Thumbs up Domain DNS Records for VPS

    Dear Community

    I would like to ask what DNS Records people have set up at their registrar for their root domain? I have a fresh VPS install and am in the process of setting up my root domain to point to the private name servers on the VPS instance.

    So far I think I definitely need two A records that point to IP1 & IP2 for name servers ns1 & ns2. Just wondering what other records e.g. CNAME, MX etc you folks also have set?

    Many thanks, Ian.

    Hello Ian,

    As per your question, I would like to suggest you that ns1 and ns2 are sufficient for the same.


    Thanks

    You just need to update the nameservers at the end of your domain registrar, if you dont have nameservers, you can register in your domain control panel or your hosting company can provide you with it too.

    Hello,

    Here are few things that you will like to set after the VPS.

    Name-servers as the other told you so. Register them via Domain registrar.
    ns1. >> IP of VPS
    ns2. >> 2nd IP of VPS


    Come to the server and make sure the A records are added.

    Now the Hostname and the A record for it.

    These will suffice your initial setup.

    To point your domain name to your vps you need to:

    1) Login to your registrar's account and create 2 sub-domains for your desired domain. You can call them NS1.yourdomain.com and NS2.yourdomain.com

    2) Point your newly created ns1 and ns2 to your server ip address (note: some registrars will require you to have 2 unique IP addresses)

    3) Last step is to change your domain's dns servers again from your registrar's control panel to your newly created ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com


    After all 3 steps are completed successfully it might take up to 24 hours for all changes to take effect.

    When you begin attempting to deal with your domain's DNS surprisingly, everything can appear to be exceptionally befuddling. Try not to freeze! DNS records can threaten, however they're not all that hard once you figure out them. If your web host is active 24/7 for support then you may ask them to sort out the problem. If you are looking for best web hosting or VPS hosting services then you must try us once.
