How to adjust DNS Domain Freenom
Edit Record at Freenom
First of all, Freenom’s DNS is quite bad, sometimes when you finish editing but the IP still hasn’t pointed to the VPS, you should switch to Cloudflare’s DNS to act as an intermediary (see instructions below)
Step 1: Select Services -> My Domains
Step 2: Now we will go to the domain management step in Freenom, select Manage Domains
Step 3: Choose Manage Freenom DNS
Step 4: Enter the IP information of the VPS to point the Domain to
Name: enter your Domain, as in the example above à anonyviet-test.tk
Target: IP VPS
Point Freenom DNS to Cloudflare
You need to Create a CloudFlare account, enter email, password. Then choose Protect your Internet privacy
Enter the Domain you have registered with Freenom.
Choose the Free package 0$ and then Continue.
Keep pressing tiếp tục -> Confirm
Scroll down to number 4. Copy 2 values of nameservers
Back to Freenom management page, Select Management Tools -> Nameservers
Check in: Use custom nameservers (enter below), Enter 2 CloudFlare Nameservers values in the box below:
Return to the CloudFlare page, select Done -> Finish Later
While you wait for Cloudflare to confirm DNS from Freenom, you can set your Domain to VPS’s IP. Choose DNS.
Select Add record:
- Type: A
- Name: @
- IPv4: is the IP of the VPS
- Proxy status: If used to Hack Data 4G, it should color cloud off Go yellow, and the normal web for Website is turned on to cover the real IP, avoiding the DDOS taste.
So I have finished registering and using a free domain name at Freenom for 1 year, please note that only the extensions can be used. .tk, .ml, .ga, .cf, .gq stop it
