Pointing your domain to your Joyent web server makes it easier than connecting with an IP address! Set it up now in a few simple clicks
First, you will need your Joyent machine's public IP address. Log into your Joyent account here to access your machine's public IP address
Your machine has two IP addresses: a public IP address and a private IP address. You will need to locate the Public IP address for this setup
You can find both addresses addresses in the Machine Details page of your machine in the Joyent portal by logging in here
Private addresses are in one of the following ranges:
- 10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
- 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
- 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
Public addresses are outside the private address ranges.
The Machine Details page lists your machine's IP addresses as 10.12.28.4, 126.96.36.199.
The public address is 188.8.131.52.
The private address is 10.12.28.4.
Once you have your Joyent Public IP address, complete the setup on your POP account
Log into your POP account and click Domain Settings on Domain Name
Under the Simple DNS tab, click to toggle on Joyent. Enter your Public Server IP address and confirm the changes
You've finished the setup for pointing your domain to your Joyent public IP address! Woohoo!
