    Please enter fqdn hostname

    I am currently trying to install VestaCP on my vps using ssh. At a point, it asked me this

    Please enter fqdn hostname:

    Name:  Please enter fqdn hostname.png

    Is this because I have not set up my hostname in my VPS? Where can I find my using hostname?

    I'm not sure which I should fill for host name in this case, I should add IP address or my domain name into it?

    Thanks

    I am confusing about this issue.
    You should ask your hosting provider about hostname, they can configure it for you.

    FQDN means Fully Qualified Domain Name .. if you have a domain registered you can a FQDN associated with it. e.g. if you have a domain name abc.com the FQDN will be myserver.abc.com , myvps.abc.com or server.abc.com . You have to first assign that hostname to your VPS and then install the vestacp.

    Right , every control panel needs a hostname to be assigned on that particular server. Hostname is the identity of the server. You can set the yourself with the command hostname or ask your VPS provide to set the hostname for you and they will get it configured for you.

    You can set the hostname by

    hostname server.domain.tld
    Example :
    server.namedomain.com

    and retry the installation

    Don't know how did you get VPS without giving hostname for server.
    Anyway you can find hostname by typing:
    Code:
    hostname
    if you didn't specified hostname then type
    Code:
    hostname yourserver.yourdomain.com
    sh-admin was explain you what is FQDN it contain servername.domainname from example above it will be server name "yourserver" and registered domain name "yourdomain.com"

    Basically for your hostname in VPS you enter FQDN

    I hope we helped you

    As I tried, this doesn't change hostname after a reboot.
    To change the default hostname on a new VPS you can need some steps to do this.

    Oh Sorry didn't take that in option
    you have to find
    file host and edit it so your hostname will be associated with ip

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/hosts
    Code:
     127.0.0.1      localhost localhost.localdomain
    
     123.45.67.89   hostname.domain.com   hostname
    then use hostname command
    restart network
    sudo systemctl restart network
    check your host name
    and then reboot if you need to be sure for good
