Registering and Assigning a Domain to Your KVM VPS
For KVM VPS users who wish to enhance their online presence with a unique domain name, this guide walks you through the process of domain registration and linking it to your VPS.
Choosing a Domain Registrar: You can purchase a domain from any domain registrar. Some popular options include:
- Google Domains
- Visit the website of the chosen registrar.
- Use the search function to choose your domain (e.g., "myawesomeproject.com").
- Complete the purchase, ensuring that DNS hosting is included.
Locating Your VPS IP Address: Your VPS IP address is provided by EDIS Global upon the activation of your KVM VPS plan. You also find it in the VPS panel.
Configuring DNS Records:
- Access your domain registrar's control panel and navigate to the DNS settings.
- Create a new "A" record:
- Set the "Host" to "@" to denote your domain.
- Input your VPS IP address in the provided field.
- Save your new DNS configuration.
DNS Propagation Time: The changes may take anywhere from a few minutes up to 48 hours to fully propagate.
- DNS Propagation: If your website does not become accessible immediately, please allow the necessary time for DNS propagation.
- Support: Should you require assistance with finding your VPS IP address or have any concerns, please contact EDIS Global Support.
