Re: VPS + DNS +Odoo

The easiest way to set this up securely and for free (IMO) is with Cloudflare.

1. Get a VPS (OVH is a good one, and you can get a Dockerized 3gb ram VPS for like 5 dollars/month.). —> Install ODOO on this, Docker or otherwise.
2. Get a domain (either through cloudlfare or with Google domains or some other actually good domain service).
3. Point the domain to Cloudflare DNS servers (those instructions are in your free Cloudflare account)
4. Once the domain is set in Cloudflare create an A record that points to your VPS IP address.
5. Turn encryption on in Cloudflare (also free).
6. All done.

Remember, with this setup your actual server IP is hidden (better security!) so to log in with SSH you will have to remember the actual IP and not go through your domain name ie: ssh user@ipaddress instead of ssh user@mydomain

Dear Mohamed,

How about using odoo cloud enterprise? (If you are not going to make a change on odoo)

You can compare the odoo cloud enterprise user(s) price with VPS server + DNS + engineering cost for setting up and configuration odoo. The odoo cloud support team probably help you setting up DNS with minimum cost. :)

Hi Mohamed,

1: First you need to buy a Domain (URL) from any domain providers (like Godaddy).

2: Second you would need to buy space on the cloud server and you would get the IP address of that server. (You already have this)

3: Now, you need to register your IP address on your domain provider (link the IP address with the URL) Godaddy

When the above steps are done, you can access the server by URL directly. Now, you would need to install the Odoo server on the cloud space and configure either Apache or Nginx to handle the request.

Once all these done, you can access the Odoo using URL.

Hello dear everyone,

I want to link in domain name to my VPS server on which odoo runs.

Can you recommend a resource or give me the procedure to follow, please?
