Yeah, just do as calum says, point the domain to the IP.

Use apache virtual hosts if you want to put up more than one.

easiest thing is to just create an A record pointing to the ip of your
server (presuming you have dns services from your domain registrar)

I'm not sure how functional the control panel is but you just need to
set up a DNS server such as bind9 on your dedi.

Hi there, just getting my bearings with this new server...

When i log in to managerv3 > myservices > new domain and add a domain
it won't display anywhere? (so i can't manage it)

I have a domain registered elsewhere and want to host it on my server,
so i assume i should be choosing the 'host on the dedicated server'
option rather than anything else?

Cheers in advance
