Magnus Burton asked:
I followed a tutorial last night on how to create a virtual host on Apache and later connected my domain to it using DNS A records. Someone today, I can’t even connect to the domain as it says in Chrome that my domain could not be found.
All virtual host/DNS tutorials I’ve looked at have been muddy and unclear so I’m asking you – please point me to a great in depth tutorial on how to connect my domain to my VPS using virtual host and DNS A records (or if there’s a better way?) or write one here and I’d be so glad.
Thank you so much!
Here’s a picture of my DNS configuration on www.pcextreme.nl where I’ve bought my domain www.bonecountyroleplay.com. The IP to my VPS is 2126.96.36.199
On my VPS IP Apache site (2188.8.131.52) I’ve made a subfolder called bonecountyroleplay.com and under that, public_html. I’ve then started a virtual host (which I guess I did wrong) to listen for the domain (bonecountyroleplay.com) and redirect that domain to the bonecountyroleplay.com/public_html folder.
Your domain’s nameservers are not correct in the registrar record.
nameserver: ns1.volt-host.com nameserver: ns2.volt-host.com
As your screenshot shows, they should be:
v1.pcextreme.nl v2.pcextreme.nl v3.pcextreme.eu
Since your domain seems to be registered with PCExtreme, you will need to contact them to have this error corrected.
