Requirements for a domain to be pointed to a VPS  

The following are a must to be completed before pointing a domain to a VPS:

1. The Domain name must be registered in .com, .in, .net etc. 

2. The default name server and the domain name server, (DNS), of the registrar must be used with default settings.  

3. The VPS or other server’s IP address must be obtained.
