I have the following setup:
1: bought a domain name from bluehost
2: bought a vps from hostinger
3: asked bluehost to point my domain to my vps and they did, now that’s example.com working!
but please note this, I can no longer create subdomains using bluehost, the only choice left for me is to do it from my server.
4: on my VPS I have virtualmin/webmin installed
I have followed the following steps to create a subdomain:
1: logged into webmin @ server_ip:10000
2: clicked on webmin on nav bar
3: found and opened “Virtualmin Virtual Servers”
4: added the website’s subdomain name as “subdomain.website.com”
5: selected all those options to setup necessary things such as DNS zones/DNS Bind
I had to confirm that the server is working so I opened Server > Apache Webserver and saw my subdomain name, there it showed me a button named ‘Open’ as if it was accessible via port 80.
I did that but still it gave me this error “DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN”
The DNS configuration as you know are created automatically, I don’t think I need to provide them here.
