Setup Guide Part 2 - DNS

Creating DNS Template/Configuring Name Servers

Click on the "DNS Templates" icon from the home screen.

Then click the "Add DNS Template" tab and you will be presented with the following screen:

Fill in the information as defined above.

ns1 and ns2.yourdomain.tld should be replaced with the domain that you choose for your VPS domain name.

Click the "Add" button when you are done. You will be returned to the main DNS Templates screen.
From here you can edit your templates by clicking on the name in the list.
In order for these nameservers to work you will now need to register your nameservers at your domain registrar.

Registering Your Nameservers

Some registrars require you have unique IP addresses for each nameserver.
If your VPS plan only includes one IP address (our Basic plan) additional IP addresses can be purchased for $30 per year.
Once your additional IP address is added you will need to modify the A record of "ns2" in your DNS template and change it to the new IP address that was added to your account.

Changing your Nameservers

Now that your name servers are registered you will need to associate your domain with those name servers.

If your domains are registered with another registrar/provider you will need to register your name servers and update your DNS settings in the same manner at your respective registrar.


Adding your domain

Under the main admin page, navigate to the resources section and click the "Add Domain" icon.



You will then be greeted with a screen to add your domain. Fill out the information below and click "add" when finished.



At this point, you will need to add the domain name as a default domain. To do so, navigate back to the main admin screen, under the domains tab, click "default domain".



You will be taken to an area to set the default domain for kloxo. You will need to select your domain from the drop down menu and click update.

This will set your domain as the default domain for your VPS.

You will then need to restart apache for these changes to take effect.


Restarting Apache and BIND

To begin, start by clicking services from the Server:Linux section in the main admin screen. See the image below:



You will be taken to the following screen. This screen shows you a list of all the services running on your server. The services listed in red are not running. Using the image below, you can stop, start or restart the services from this screen. Click the restart button for both named and apache.


Wait until the page stops loading. Once you have restarted both BIND (named) and Apache, you can proceed to the next step.


Assigning your IP address

NOTE: Before this step can be completed your name servers MUST be registered and pointed to your VPS.

From the main admin page, you will need to navigate to the resources section and choose "IP Addresses".


Click your IP address from the list and you will be taken to the IP configuration page. Click "configure domain" as shown below.

You will be taken to the following screen where you can select the domain to assign from the drop down menu. Once your domain name has been selected, save the changes by clicking "update".
