Hosting Your Domain On Redbrick
So you've decided that www.redbrick.dcu.ie/~user isn't enough for you and so you go and buy your own domain, www.mydomain.com from one of the many registrars out there on the web. But how do you get www.mydomain.com to point to what's on redbrick website?
1. You should be able to configure your domain using a control panel on the registrar's website. You're looking to add either an "a" record or a "cname" record. You need to set the domain to resolve to vhost.redbrick.dcu.ie or 184.108.40.206 . That will make all traffic to it come to the redbrick webserver.
2. Once that traffic gets there, redbrick needs to know what to do with it. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and ask them to add an entry to vhosts for www.mydomain.com.
And that's it.
