How do I make my VPS show at a domain name?

    Okay, so I've set-up my website and everything on my VPS, but how do I make the website display when I visit e.g mydomain.com ? Currently I can only view it from a different computer via the VPS IP address.

    How long has it been since you set up name records?

    I've registered my nameservers and set them to my domain, it's been about 3 days now.

    What does intoDNS say for errors?

    When you have done adding new DNS Entry, you can use the Command line tool "dig" for this. It's allowing you to make DNS requests. Try this:

    # Making a resolve request to Google's Nameserver of akendo.eu with only show the A entry.
    dig akendo.eu @ A +noall +answer
    ; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> akendo.eu @ A +noall +answer
    ;; global options: +cmd
    akendo.eu.		86399	IN	A
    You should also check that you can reach the VPS in the right way. Use "ping" for this.
    What Web server do you use?

    so far
