Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to host a website on a VPS. I have everything working except for domain name resolution.

The VPS has no control panel. It just has a CLI.

I did go to my domain registrar which provides DNS service and I added the following

A mysite.com the.server.ip.address.here

Do I have to do something on the server side?

If you recently added the domain it can take 24 hours to propogate. –  bodhi.zazen Feb 13 '13 at 17:01
    
@bodhi.zazen I added it about 4 hours ago. So I just wait to see if it works? I didn't do anything about dns in my server. –  Hit Cheng Liu Feb 13 '13 at 17:05
    
I would wait 24 hours ;) –  bodhi.zazen Feb 13 '13 at 17:18
