Hello guys, I’m new here!
I just had my first experience with easy engine and I was blown away! The speed of my wordpress installation on my vps is just incredible! I do have a few worries that I want to clear out before continuing working on it and potentially wasting lots of time.
I currently have a website and a domain name online with a US based registrar. I’m keep it up for now while I work on the new VPS setup.
I installed it without domain name and with an IP instead because that was the only way to be able to access the wordpress and check the website out for now (as it isnt attached to any domain yet)
1-Is it possible to change that IP name to an actual host name later (without breaking all the work I’ve done on that wordpress installation because that would be horrible) ? + how
2-What steps do I take to link my domain name with my current registrar to this vps setup instead of the current registrars hosting ?
3- Does easy engine have a built in firewall running ? if not, do you recommend running one ?
4- How do I go about getting an ssl cert installed (which I currently have on my registrar)
Thanks a ton people !
