  • Thanks for your answer. But my question is how can I add new purchased domain to my hosting. For example, I buy a new domain at somewhere, and I can add new domain in plesk on my dedicated server. But how can I have that domain link to my server? Feb 12 '15 at 2:08
  • do you know name server configuration ? Feb 12 '15 at 9:53
  • Don't know. All I know when using shared hosting, when I buy a new domain, I just need to put the hosting DNS on the domain setting and add that domain on the hosting control panel and it will works. Feb 12 '15 at 10:12
  • Search google for create name server. Select one of existing domain for using name server, for example select : yourmaindomain.com Add new ns (nameserver) for yourmaindomain.com in your domain panel (where you bought domain) and point to your server ip. And then change new purchased domain dns to ns1.yourmaindomain.com thats all. Feb 12 '15 at 12:16
