Question

Webmin, add domain, what about DNS?

Hi, i’m planning to setting up my VPS on DigitalOcean with Webmin. And i have question about my existing domain. How can i add the domain to this VPS? What happen with DNS server? After webmin installation should i change something with DNS for properly working? Because we have feature to add a domain in panel on digitalocean, but on webmin too. I think webmin should know about Digitalocean’s dns server.

Thanks in advance!

Hello, @wlodziak

In order to point the domain name to your droplet with DO you need to adjust the DNS for the domain. You can either just set the A record for the domain to the IP address of your droplet or update the nameservers for the domain name to the Digital Ocean ones and then adjust the DNS from there. It’s totally up to you.

Hope this helps.
