How do I use my own downain name for ssh?
I setup an Ubuntu 18.08LTS server on Linode and configured ssh keys and dissabled password logins.
I want to connect my personal domain name to the server so I can log in via ssh using my domain name instead of the IP address assigned to me by Linode. For example, instead of logging into the server like this: "ssh firstname.lastname@example.org", I want to log in like this: "ssh email@example.com".
I'm not sure what this is called so I've not been able to search for it. Can someonone point me in the right direction? Thanks.
P.S. Eventually I want to setu a mail server and use the same domain name. not sure if that changes the answer.
Please setup the DNS record for your domain.
A and AAAA records to point to ipv4 and ipv6 of your linode.
Once that records are setup, you can do a ping
mydomain.com and it should show you the ip address of the linode
Then you can do
hope it helps.
Thanks. It works!
