So here I move to godaddy.com VPS. To transfer my domain I need to set up name servers..
I have Plesk control panel but it should be similar with other control panels..
Plesk gives you some default name servers but one of the requirements from my domain registrar ( I have a foreign domain and no access to change my own dns servers) was to have TWO dns servers.
Luckily Godaddy.com give 3 IP addresses for VPS. So you need to add at least one more.. then..
plesk->homepage->yourdomain->DNS zone management
1-Delete the current NS record in your dns zone
YourDomain.com A YourIP
YourDomain.com NS NS.YourDomain.com
2-Add two A records for nameservers, like:
ns1.YourDomain.com IN A yourFirstIP
ns2.YourDomain.com IN A yoursecondIP
3-Add two new NS records like:
YourDomain.com IN NS ns1.Yourdoamin.com
YourDomain.com IN NS ns2.Yourdoamin.com
Hope this information was useful.
Midnight Commander is a file manager for free operating systems if you are not a keyboard guy and would still like to use SSH it is a very powerfull tool.
For me it is the first thing I need to install found a good command for it after hours of search… So how to install Midnight Commander login in SSH with root user and:
yum install mc
and I also need
yum install unzip
Easy huh 🙂
