What are nameservers like “ns1.domain.com” and “ns2.domain.com”?
I have a domein called Removed, I want to host sites in it with my VPS, I know i need to install a webpanel like VestaCP, How can i connect my domain to my vps example:
Now is it: IP:PORTOFPANEL I want: DOMAIN.COM:PORTOFPANEL
Do i need to add A and CNAME records to my vps ip in the DNS control panel on my Domain?
And how can i remove IP/DOMAIN:PORTOFPANEL and make it panel.DOMAIN.COM?

paneland point it to your Droplet. Once you’ve done that, you will be able to access the control panel by browsing to
Theoretically, though, it is possible to configure Apache to proxy
127.0.0.1:PORTby adding a virtualhost that looks like this:
I have never used VestaCP myself before, so I do not know if that will break anything, but you can always give it a shot and just delete it if it doesn’t work. Good luck!
Hello, When you purchase a domain you will get a name server and your website will address to that name server. However, you can run a website with help of IP address also.
