How do I point my domain name to my vps and set up my own nameservers

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

1) Login to your registrar's account and create 2 sub-domains (hosts for Godaddy) 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.

 

4) Install and configure BIND on your vps or use our Free DNS Hosting.
