Friends,

I am a Novice Linux/Ubuntu user and currently i decided to strengthen my knowledge in Ubuntu. Since i am a programmer, lately i decided to setup my own web server powered by Ubuntu on my own VPS.

P.S. My knowledge level in VPS as well as Linux/Ubuntu is close to zero… except writing couple of shell scripts for my ERP programs I know absolutely nothing.

I just bought an unmanage VPS powered by Ubuntu 16.04. I have managed to install the Apache, PHP, MySQL and the basic security changes.

Previously, i was just a shared hosting user where everything is managed via cPanel which is easy. Now is totally different and i am clueless since i am on unmanaged VPS and of course the hosting company will not help me.

My question:
Previously, when I want to host new website, after I purchase a domain from registrar I will change the domain nameservers with my sharedhosting nameservers I just add the domain via cPanel. How can I host a domain/website on my new VPS? How to have a nameserver? How to setup the nameserver?

I know there are many hosting experts here, so just thought of posting it here…

I’m not an expert but as far as I know, you must have got a dedicated IP address for your VPS machine. This IP address will be used in your Domain Settings to point DNS record to your server. Don’t have to add domain to your VPS or anything like that.

About hosting website, you have to use the configuration of your web server (like Apache/Nginx) to point a particular site to a particular domain.

You should search for tutorials on Google and YouTube.

@Jagsss

Point domain A records to your dedicated or not dedicated IP address and your domain will start running from your server.

You also need to instal LAMP stack or whatever/however you want to run your server.

I only use aws so in there I can create my custom nameservers which can be used for configuring the domain.

I have no Idea of how your VPS works/is configured.

1)
for web server (dedicated server or vps) CentOS (like Ubuntu it’s also a OS) is best as it is updated and maintained by redhat and independent teams, also it is in “Enterprise level” so if posible use CentOS..

2)
next thing is managing / monitoring / controlling
for managing website first we need a LAMP (linux, apache, mysql, php) server like (apache or nginX) and php, mysql (you can get mongoDB and other databases too)

In shared hosting we have cpanel so everything is already there, so one click operation, but need to pay a big amount of $15/month (~ 1000 rs per month) for cpanel licence for vps, thats not affordable, so we need to find alternative for cpanel

Webuzo panel (cpanel alternative)
http://www.webuz...m/

installing webuzo to cenots is simple and need only one copy and paste code in putty (using putty we install scripts and all via SSH in linux)
that webuzo contain apache and all, now you get a panel like cpanel , and you can manage it ..

Method 1- You can install CentOs. After that you can use nulled version of DirectAdmin(it is a control panel like CPanel etc.) which you can get from me. It ia safe and you do not think it is nulled as it does not have bugs(personally checked). Or you can also opt for paid version but I do not think it is necessary as it will increase your budget.

Method 2- You can install everything manually or choose any open source control panel as it gives best control over the features otherwise you will not get file manager etc and you will have to control everything via FTP or SSH. There are lots of tutorials present on the internet for installation everything manually.

Method 3- If you do not want to install anything and let it use like you use in shared hosting then choose managed vps hosting as it will be controlled by the provider and of course you will have root access.

Thanks for your replies guys… but seems I’m too novice to understand many of these replies… smile

Let me explain my problem…

I’ve installed LAMP on my VPS
I have 2 domain names… from bigrock and 1and1.com

I created subdomains in 1and1.com for my domain (ns1.xyz.com, ns2.xyz.com) and created A records in DNS settings. In A records I gave my server IP address… Now domain DNS settings I have assigned my newly created nameservers to my domain…
But still I’m not able to access my site through my domain name… my VPS is on Godaddy.com
