I have a domain that is brought from go daddy and i want to point to my server. Is there any tutorials or configuration upon that?

There are two things you'll need to do, one on the GoDaddy side, the other in Linode Manager.

First, you'll need to point the domain to Linode's name servers:


Here's a link to GoDaddy's documentation on how to make this change on their end:

For more information on this, there's this other Community post:

Then, once you've set up the nameservers on GoDaddy, you'll need to create an A record for your domain using Linode's DNS Manager. This Community post outlines the steps needed for that:

Once you have your domain set to point to Linode's nameservers, and an A record to point to your Linode, your site should be up set up to accept traffic. DNS propagation can take a while, sometimes up to 24 hours across the whole internet. If you're not seeing the domain work within a couple hours, I would recommend checking over your DNS record and maybe the documentation one more time to make sure it as set up correctly.
