(HowTo) VHosts

Post by Fox » Mon Jan 30, 2012 10:43 pm

To set up your personalised host, you'll need to create an account on afraid.org. This site provides free subdomains on a very large number of domains available. Once your account has been activated, click on the 'Registry' link on the left side of the page to reach a list of available domains.

Now, you get to choose a domain name on which your VHost will be based. Whatever you choose will be shown at the end of your VHost (e.g. [email protected]), prefixed by the subdomain you'll be setting in just a minute. Once you select a domain, click on its name to be sent to the subdomain selection screen. Here, you'll be prompted to set your subdomain, its destination, and its type.

Start by setting the type to 'AAAA', followed by replacing the existing 'destination' field with your BNC's IPV6 address; this can be obtained by whoising yourself from the BNC, and will look like 2600:3c00::17:1100. Lastly, set the 'subdomain' to whatever you like (alphanumeric characters and dashes/fullstops only), in this case it would be 'are.a', and click 'Save!' to submit.

Congratulations! You now have a domain to use as your ChanStat BNC custom bVHost. Now all that's left to do is to submit your application to ChanStat staff!

Note that if you chose a domain set to 'private', your subdomain may be rejected if it's deemed inappropriate by its host. ChanStat BNC assumes no responsibility for such occurences, and urges you to select only domains set to 'public'.
