Hi Everyone,

One of my websites is now too big for shared hosting but not big enough for a dedicated server so we went with a VPS (Virtual Private Server).

I have had no experience with this before so I got Cpanel installed on it for me from the host. The question is now how do I go about creating getting my website onto this server? In shared hosting its easy just click add on domains & change your DNS but I don't figure out for the life of me how to do this?

Does anyone have any experience with a VPS?

Have you tried reading some documentation?

The host I use provided no documentation and does not have a support forum - in all the support sites I have found it seems that the main domain is already set in the vps. I can't seem to find how to set a main domain.

It's Linux; there's a plethora of documentation on the net.

I can't seem to find how to set a main domain.

Main domain for what? If you mean your web server, it's in the web server config. Most likely in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
