You may wonder what a centOS is? CentOS is one of several Linux-based operators. It is popular among many user due to its fast speed and cheap license fee. CentOS is only operational on a Linux configured system.

  2. Then, use your SSH console to copy and paste the right command line. A graphical user (GUI) is the interface adopted in Linux VPS, against the old command line used on some windows VPS.

Although you have successfully installed the panel, which requires no stress, you will need to set up the Cpanel to activate it. As you read further, you will discover how to set up Cpanel VPS.

How To Set Up Cpanel VPS

Set up IP Address(es)

Step 4

Input and Configure Nameservers

In step 4, you have to be careful before inputting your option, as this step involves critical stages.

Your Cpanel will provide you a Nameserver you will need to configure. However, you can change this nameserver to your preferred choice, either PowerDNS or bind. Then enter the domain name, and attach it to your nameserver. For example, the domain name can be If you have an existing domain name, you can link it up with your server. If you don't have a domain name yet, you can create one, while your browser will scan if it already existed or otherwise. In other words, getting a domain name is simple.

Then, go ahead to configure your nameserver by clicking the option "configure address record for nameservers and hostname". In this part, you would be required to also input your IP address. Then, add A entries for hostname, and save the fifth step.
