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.
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…
