I have a domain of a provider and a vps of dogitalocean.How i connect my domain to my vps?

Hi i have my own domain that I buy ( have add the domain in the DNS section. In my vps i have installes cPanel & WHM. I add my hostname into the setup of WHM. I’ve created a cPanel account for me.I create some sub domains and I put the domain redirection to my vps ip.When I type for example it say this error: ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED I’ve create this sub domain also in the domain controller of my provider but anyway don’t work. This is my zone file : $ORIGIN $TTL 1800 IN SOA 1440779151 10800 3600 604800 1800 1800 IN NS 1800 IN NS 1800 IN NS 1800 IN A 1800 IN CNAME 1800 IN CNAME 1800 IN CNAME 1800 IN CNAME I think that is not a problem of the zone file but a problem of cPanel or a problem of my provider. Anyway when i type my Ip : (dev is the folde that contain the index.php) it says this error:

Not Found The requested URL /dev was not found on this server. Apache/2.4.16 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips mod_bwlimited/1.4 Server at Port 80 Is it a problem of Apache?I have read the file .htaccess but i think is Ok.

My .htaccess of

RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$ [OR] RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$ RewriteRule ^/?$ “” [R=301,L]

What i can do?

In my case I have installed vesta panel on VPS instead of CPanel.

Well I created Child Name servers for my domain name. it points to my server ip it points to my server ip

I updated these name servers on my other domains and installed website on my vps and it worked fine.

It looks like you haven’t changed your nameservers for this domain to point to DigitalOcean’s nameservers:

$ whois
Name servers:

So, you should log in to the registrar where you registered this domain and change the domain’s nameservers there to:
