Just entered the programming field, formerly computer repair, trying to learn all I can. I like the web application aspect of programming, seems more useful and applicable in real world situations.

comment Setting up Ubuntu server for webhosting?
When I said locally I meant that the server resides in our local office, a server "room" a few doors down from my office. Sorry for the mixup.

It doesn't look that way as the DNS Manager says it's not hosted there. Which implies I need a DNS somewhere to resolve all this? Are DNS and nameservers the same thing? Some info seems to say that while other info doesn't. Would it be possible to move this to chat?

Hmm. The article tells me where to provide the nameservers for the domain, but not how to create them? What I mean is, I could give it my.ip.address.here and it would look to my server, but will the server understand? Or do I have to create a dns on it for it to function properly? Though I guess apache would take over once it got the request for the domain?

Godaddy. And some of the domains do, but some have "DNS Manager: Not hosted here" The domains which have that are the ones I need pointing to our server. Why I was asking about DNS servers in addition to nameservers.

Yes, we have multiple domains registered. I just don't have nameservers to give those domains yet, trying to figure out how to create those for my server. And I believe we have a public IP, is there a way to check this? Edit: Just ran wget -O - -q icanhazip.com and it returned our IP, not sure if that means it's public or not.

@h0tw1r3 I've updated my post, my specific questions should be more clear now. :) And marcoc, I'm not sure if that's what I need? I was just under the impression that I had to have a DNS on my server in order for requests to specific domains on my server to be resolved.
