Hi,
My site is running at this IP: http://159.89.165.105/. I want to connect my domain name with this IP. My cousin has bought the domain name from publicdomainregistry.com and I have searched on Google and Youtube but, I have not found any tutorial regarding publicdomainregistry. I have also tried to contact publicdomainregistry but, I have not got any responses. Can you share me link or tutorial to connect my IP and domain name?

If you set the hostname test.easyschools.org on your “droplet” and A record on DNS then you can only login to the test.easyschools.org. Because “www” is your web/website address in your CNAME record, is not your host server name (hostname).

I didn’t set it to test i just did what the tutorial set when adding A record as test in the host name

i need to remove the test. before my domain to log in!..what should I do?

You can use www.duckdns.org and www.noip.com to link your droplets to the domain.
