WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hi, I bought a domain name on OVH and now i want to link it to my server WebFaction; I created a website, an application and a domain name on WF but i don't understand how to link it to my domain name.

I did a redirection of my domain name to the IPV6 adress of my server but that don't work, I don't know why.

Can you help me in the procedure to do this? Thanks in advance!

If you want WebFaction to manage all of the DNS records for your domain, then you need to set the nameservers for your domain. Instructions are available here: Pointing Your Domain to WebFaction’s Servers

If you want WebFaction to only handle the website for your domain, then you need to set the A and AAAA records for your domain. Instructions are available here: Using External Name Servers > A and AAAA

I hope this helps! Please let us know if you need anything else.
