if you are like me, i have a linux server with webmin installed. and i want to host a domain name with webmin so to add it in my server so i can host the files. this way i dont have to pay expensive fees to a web hosting company to host all my domain names because i have so many. so i will show you step by step what i did to add. this is what i did
1. login to your webmin panel:
2. go to Servers > BIND DNS Server
3. In the BIND DNS Server, click on "Create Master Zone" link under "Exisiting DNS Zones"
4. populate the following fields:
» Domain name / Network (this is the domain name you want to host)
» Email address (this is the webmaster's email address)
» IP address for template records (enter your server's ip address)
5. now click on the "Create" button
6. Then you will be taken to the "Edit Master Zone" page. on this page you will need to click on the "Address" icon
7. in the Address Records page, populate the following in the "add address record" table:
» Name (Enter www)
» Address (Enter your server's IP)
» CLICK "Create"
after you created the address record, click on "Return to record types" link at the bottom
8. now that we have added you domain name to your DNS server, its time to create a virtual host in your apache server so in the Servers category, click on "Apache Webserver" link
9. click "Create virtual host"
10 . Populate the following fields in the "Create a New Virtual Server" form:
Handle connections to address: (select: Specifi Address... [enter the server's ip address])
» Port: (here you can select Default, Any or specify one. what i did, i specified port 80, so i entered 80)
» Document Root: (here i specified which directory i was going to have this domain's files for this site. so i entered /var/www/html/mydomain but you can enter whatever directory you want to put your web files, its your choice)
» Server Name (i entered my domain name like this: www.mydomain.com:80 [i included the :80 part also])
» Add virtual server to file (leave default as Standard httpd.conf file)
» Copy directives from (leave default: Nowhere)
11. after you have created the virtual host, you need to save the changes. there is a link "Apply Changes" click on it.
12. now if you domain name is pointing to your server, you should be able to see the your domain name. just make sure you have an index file like index.html or index.php file in the directory you specified in step 10.
Thanks to the suppor poeple at www.webune.com for helping me figure this out. now i am able to add as many domain names to my dedicated server i got from Webune.
