I have created an account for my site which I can login to domain.tld/cpanel

I have not added the IPv6 address to the domains DNS records and I'm still seeing the domain.tld/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

Btw, should I also add the VPS's iPV6 to the AAAA Host?

So just point the @ to my VPS IP and done?

What about the emails?

I'll give this a try and report back.

Thank you!

Hello,

I have ran into a hiccup. I have a domain purchased from GoDaddy which I would like to host it on OVH. But before I host the domain on OVH, I would like to prepare the server & the FTP files so that there will be less downtime on the domain. My problem is that I can't seem to find the 2 right nameservers to use on GoDaddy.

I hope this message is being posted in the right place.

Thanks!
