    Doubts in the Server Installation domain to ip


    Doubts in the Server Installation

    I already have some (little) practice in linux and I always had this doubt.

    To install and configure a serious server, webserver, mail server and more what I need?

    1- fixed IP not a dynamic
    2 - buy the domain, ex myserver.com
    My question starts here, how to redirect my domain myserver.com to the ip?

    In Misk (website selling domains) have to put the dns name of our hosting
    in this case the hosting is our server ip fixed at home.
    ??

    Hi!

    Well Im not a expert too, but I bought a dns service with dyndns. And my server work great.

    example: ww.mydomain.com -> Public IP -> ubuntu server
    mail.mydomain.com -> 2nd Public IP And MX record -> Postfix Server

    They are online without problems. All the changes could be from your control panel. It is not painfull

    Saludos.

    The link between ip and name is done by a service named DNS (Domain Name Server).
    Somwhere is a list with all names and coresponding IP's.
    Usually this service is provided by your ISP.
