    I followed the guide on your website to install ISPconfig 3 on my VPS server and everything went fine except im not able to access ISPconfig using my domain name or IP address.

    Please help me configure my Domain with my VPShosting.
    I have only the IP address of the VPShosting and nothing else like cname etc.
    The domain was bought from

    My VPS is unmanaged and the company is not offering any kind of help.

    from here on "" == replaced with my original domain name
    I bought this domain from yahoo and used A-Record of the domain to point it to my VPS server's IP address

    When I was following your guide used "" instead of and everything went fine.

    when i type
    hostname -f
    I get

    can anyone help me redirect my domain and help me access my ISP install.

    The hosting company told me install bind (named) to get my domain pointing right.

    Can you check if points to the right IP address? You can do that by running
    Also, please run
    echo > /etc/hostname
    /etc/init.d/ start
    hostname -f should then show

    after this command it still shows

    may be you can help with the correct steps if i have a VPS unmanaged with CentOS / Ubuntu 9.04 (whichever we need) and a domain name from yahoo.

    as for the VPS i have the main ip, ssh ip, the username and password and nothing else

    yahoo domain i have access to the control panel and i can change A-Record, Cname and stuff like this.

    Can you help from the start on what to do and how to connect the domain to the hosting and the rest.

    Thank you so much. This will be very helpful for me and many others.

    Which virtualization technique is being used? It's possible that the hostname is set on the host and cannot be changed from within the VPS.

    i dont which virtualization is being used.

    I will cleary state the facts and then maybe you can help

    1. VPS Hosting
    canada based CARAT hosting - unmanaged hosting without cpanel
    They gave me IP, SSH IP, username, passwords for all of these!
    They give me option to reinstall OS in the VPS control panel
    CentOS / Ubuntu / Fedora are the choices i got.
    No domain name included in the package

    2. Domain name i bought using yahoo, since it was cheaper.
    I have username and password for the domain control panel

    I want to add my domain to my VPS hosting and install FTP and MySQL and if possible a opensource control panel also

    can you guide me from here?
