Set up domain name for a scaleway server


#1

How can I setup a domain name from namecheap to point to a scaleway server?
Will my server’s public DNS address help me at something?

You will have to point a AAA domain/subdomain to your server’s public IP yes ! :slight_smile:

Best option would be either setup your own nameserver or use a public nameserver. You can use http://freedns.centos-webpanel.com.

Just create your own login credentials and add the public IP of your VPS server by adding a DNS zone record.

Put zone name as : “yourdomainname.com
Host : @
Type: A
Destination: Public IP of VPS

repeat the same for FTP and mail as needed.

Hope this resolves.
