I am completely new to setting up servers so I apologize for not knowing a lot. In the past couple days I've created a FreeBSD server connected to the internet. Now my current issue: I want to remote ssh into the server. This works well when I try to ssh directly to the IP address of the server.
[CMD=" "]ssh -Cxl userID IPAddress[/CMD]
However, I recently bought a domain name so I can access through the domain name (easier to remember). Within the registry place I have the host.domainName as a URL Redirect to the IP address of the server. When I try to login remotely using [CMD=""]ssh -Cxl userID host.domainName[/CMD] it requests for the password, but will never accept the password.
How can I make logging into the server via the host.domainName work as opposed to only remotely accessing through the IP address? Is there a setting on the server I need to change?
