I've recently bought a VPS with a view to hosting my websites on there instead of using the current shared hosting platform I'm currently using.
I've never had to configure domain names beyond just putting in the correct nameservers. Now though I have to add in A record etc and I've come unstuck.
So far, I have 5 records for a specific domain name:
- A record - Name: www - IP: 80.xx.xx.xx
- A record - Name: ftp - IP: 80.xx.xx.xx
- NS Record - ns1.6sync.net
- NS Record - ns2.6sync.net
- NS Record - ns3.6sync.net
So when I put in my domain name with the www (i.e www.domain-name.co.uk) it takes me straight to the website and works fine. However, if i try and use the domain name without the www then the browser can't find the website.
I'm not entirely sure what I'm supposed to do. Am I supposed to change something on the server or do I have to change a record for the domain name on the DNS?
