To point a domain to your VPS (Virtual Private Server), you will need to follow these general steps:

  1. Obtain the IP address of your VPS: You will need to find out the IP address of your VPS that you want to associate with your domain.
  2. Access your domain's DNS settings: Log in to the domain registrar or DNS provider where your domain is registered and navigate to the DNS management section.
  3. Add an "A" record: Within the DNS management section, you will need to add an "A" record that points your domain to the IP address of your VPS.
  4. Save changes: Save the changes you made to the DNS settings and wait for them to propagate.

Here are some more detailed steps that you can follow:

Step 1: Find the IP address of your VPS

To find the IP address of your VPS, you can log in to your VPS dashboard or terminal and run the following command:

ifconfig

This command will display network configuration information for your VPS, including the IP address.

Step 2: Access your domain's DNS settings

Log in to your domain registrar or DNS provider where your domain is registered. Navigate to the DNS management section of your domain.

Step 3: Add an "A" record

Within the DNS management section, you will need to add an "A" record that points your domain to the IP address of your VPS.

You will typically see a button to add a new record or edit existing records. Select "A" from the dropdown list of record types, and then enter your domain name and the IP address of your VPS.

For example, if your domain name is "example.com" and the IP address of your VPS is "123.456.789.123", you would add the following "A" record:

 

example.com    A    123.456.789.123
