Pointing a domain name to a VPS

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I just got a VPS. All the host gave me was an IP address to have the domain point to. Lets say my domain is mydomain.com So what I did was I removed the nameserver (not the NS records, but the actual nameserver) values. Then I added 3 A records to point to the VPS IP for the following: ns1.mydomain.com ns2.mydomain.com mydomain.com The host kept telling me I had to set up ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com. So I did. Then I created 2 NS records for mydomain.com with the values of ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com Now after I did all that, I tried setting the nameservers to ns1.myd (HowTos)
