After installing CyberPanel on your Ubuntu server, there are a few steps you can take to configure it to work properly. Here are some general guidelines:
- Create a new administrator user: By default, CyberPanel creates an admin user during installation, but it’s always good practice to create a new user with admin privileges. This will help to protect your server from unauthorized access.
- Register your nameservers: Before you can set up your own nameservers, you will need to register them with your domain registrar. This typically involves providing the names of the nameservers, as well as their IP addresses.
- Configure your nameservers: Once your nameservers are registered, you will need to configure them to work properly. This typically involves setting up DNS zones for your domain, and configuring the zones to point to your server’s IP address.
- Change your domain’s nameservers: Once your nameservers are set up and configured, you will need to change the nameservers for your domain to point to the new nameservers. This is typically done through your domain registrar’s control panel.
- Verify the setup: After you have changed your domain’s nameservers, it may take a while for the changes to propagate. You can use online tools such as “https://mxtoolbox.com” to check that your domain is pointing to your server’s IP address.
- Add the domain to CyberPanel: Once your domain is pointing to your server’s IP, you can add the domain to CyberPanel by going to the “Website” section of the control panel, and then clicking on “Add Website” button.
- Setup ReverseDNS in server panel, You can use online tools such as “https://mxtoolbox.com/ReverseLookup.aspx” to check that your your server’s IP address is pointing to domain name.
