    Hi Malc, and thank you for your answer. From what I understand I have to set A and MX records for all the domains with my registrar and point them all to the same IP which will be the IP of my VPS.
    That sounds to easy. Do I have to do any other specific changes in Virtualmin for all the domains?
    Also you say you use Cloudflare for DNS - do I set this through Virtualmin or again with the domains registrar?
    Thank you for taking the time to answer!

    You can't avoid DNS setup.  You have to do DNS setup for your website to work.  For that you have an A record that says, for example mydomain.com is 123.456.789.012.  For mail all you have to do is add an MX record saying mail.mydomain.com is your mail server.  Usually the website where you set up your dns will walk you through it.  Once that is setup so that mail goes to your IP address (same for hub and all your domains) then webmin/virtualmin handles it ending up in the right mailbox.

    Hello. First of all great article and so easy to follow. I am coming through the same thing as you - trying to get rid of the shared hosting and go the VPS route. What I struggle is the mail setup. Now I have similar configuration to yours - 1 "hub" domain as you call it and 3 separate websites. I don't want to setup DNS, but I am not sure what to write as a DNS entries for the mail to work. Basically will you be able to share the steps for the mail setup and how to route it for the 3 different domains? Or at least some guidance will be great and much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Instructions are efficiently simple and here is a side note for fellas doing the job on Google Compute Engine.

    If you are getting "error connection timeout" on browser while connecting to "https://your.domain.com:10000", you need create a firewall rule to allow incoming connection to the instance "VPS" on port "10000"

    Also you need to create another rule for "usermin" which runs on port "20000"

    Thank you Malc for the helpful post, It made things a lot easier.

    Got it now. My problem was the missing a record for the mail. So we need an A record for domain.com, another A record for the mail.domain.com, and an MX record for the mail.domain.com.

    I also added A and MX records for the smtp, don't know whether it was required. Everything's working fine now.

    Many thanks!
