VPSLink DNS

This guide assumes that you are not running your own DNS server. Control panels like LxAdmin and WHM / cPanel run their own DNS services. Refer to the LxAdmin / HostInABox documentation, cPanel DNS documentation, or other documentation specific to your control panel.

The ns1.vpslink.com and ns2.vpslink.com nameservers are not configured to respond to recursive queries and should not be used as part of any /etc/resolv.conf configuration.
