We have a server where ISPmanager is installed and we want to create a website on that server.
Create a user who will own the site. ISPmanager → Accounts → Users → click Add. Activate PHP and SSL for the newly created user.
The simplest way is to use registrar's name servers that do not require additional server configuration.
If the registrar provides name servers, in the member area order DNS-hosting (we need Secondary), and specify IP address of your server in the A record.
If your registrar does not provide names servers, configure name servers so that your site can be accessible by its name. There are several ways how to do that. We can use the most economical way when our server is used for as one name server, and a free service is used as a slave (we'll take the most popular ns2.trifle.net ).
184.108.40.206 — IP address of your server domain.com — domain name ns2.trifle.net — any free service
To open your site by its name, you should wait for some time after you configured name servers and changed data. DNS cache can be updated up to 72 hours. We don't want to wait for so long, so we will perform the following operations on your PC:
220.127.116.11 — IP address of your server domain.com — domain names
18.104.22.168 — IP address of your server domain.com — domain name
Now you can access the site by its name and see the welcome message: "domain.com has been just created."
Once DNS cache is updated, delete the above settings.
If your site already has some content (for example, a third-party organization created a site for you and provided ready-to-use files), you should upload files to the server.
If the site is not ready yet and you do not want to be preoccupied with partition languages/programming, you may use a CMS to easily add content to your site.
Followings are the steps you need to complete to install a free CMS WordPress (installation guide can be found in the official documentation .
Browse to the WordPress directory → select all the files → Copy → select domain.com in the directory tree — click Ok.
All out software products by default run through the SSL protocol (https://) that is used for secure data transfer on the Internet. An SSL certificate is used for secure connection between a server and a client's browser in order to identify the server.
For the ISPmanager control panel and our newly created website a self-signed certificate is used.
To be able to open the site through a secure protocol, and to display the green sign in the address bar, you should buy an SSL certificate from the Certification Authority and then install it.
Then, ISPmanager → WWW → SSL certificates → Add → Certificate types → Existing → provide any name for the certificate, provide the data received into the fields.
The SSL certificates installation guide can be found here .
