Next Step of Basic Server Setup



For the basic server setup, we will need 1 VPS, 1 domain with 5 additional IPs.

Virtual Private Server (VPS)

The configuration of the VPS server should be as following.

RAM: >= 2 GB. Server Space: >= 40GB


Operating System: Linux Distribution: CentOS 7 (64bit)

Root access should be needed for this server setup.

Any VPS server will be okay for this server with the above configuration but we will suggest you take OVH VPS since their servers are very economical, also the cost of IPs only needs to pay only once instead of per month.

Please use the following link for purchasing the OVH server.

OVH Value Server

Use the following configuration while ordering your server.


OVH Value VPS



Select the Datacenter. (Location of the server as per your choice)

Datacenter-OVH

Click one Next, and order your server.

Kindly Note: You have to create your account in OVH first and please provide the correct details since they might ask for the government ID and address proof to verify your identity.


Domain

You can take any (.com) domain for this server set up if you already have a spare domain so that we can use that one or else you can buy a new one from Godaddy.

Do not use your existing domain (on which your website is already running), since we need to use that domain in the server setup and also we need to install the web application on this new domain, so if any website will be running on it, will be affected by these changes.

Domain

Although you can use your existing domain while sending emails to your contacts list.


Additional IPs

VPS comes with one default IP and we will need 5 additional IPs for this setup.

You can purchase additional IPs, once your OVH VPS account will be set up by the OVH team.

OVH Control Panel –> Bare Metal Cloud --> IP Tab –> Order additional IPs.
