Domain & DNS Setup

ID #1003

What do I need to do in order to host a domain with GeekISP?

Once your account is open, use the control_apache tool on the shell server as follows:

/usr/local/bin/control_apache add mydomain.com

 

This enables the DNS and Web services for your domain. Now go to your registrar's tools and set your nameservers to be:

ns1.geekisp.com
ns2.geekisp.com
ns3.geekisp.com


Once the whois database updates, your website will begin being served off of GeekISP.

The control_apache script also sets up the storage for your website.  You will now have a new directory, 'www.mydomain.com' inside your home directory.  Inside 'www.mydomain.com', there are 2 subdirectores - cgi-bin and htdocs.  The 'htdocs' folder is where your regular web files should be placed (i.e. your html, php, css, and image files).  The cgi-bin directory is for perl, python, or shell CGI scripts.
