Steps to reproduce:

We need to have our Community website for Mozilla Bangladesh. It's a rapidly growing community with lots of activities. Currently we are keeping the community and all it's members together/informed/articulated through a Facebook group. [0]; After a meetup[1] of mozillians and all Bangladeshi ReMo, we decided that we go for our own community website in own Language, Bengali [2].

For above mentioned reason, I'm filing this bug requesting the followings.

a. Hosting: 
- Most of the users will be from Bangladesh and thus Asia.
- We intend to run a CMS for the main site, a wiki, a podcast system, and a blog.
- Approximately 200 to 300 users may visit our site. Gradually, this will increase we hope.
- We don't have an expert sysadmin to manage the server. So, we may need one and will teach ourself to take over later.

b. Email hosting - We wish to have Google apps enalbed for us.
c. Domain:

Mahay or Aniruddha (or the person who will manage the VPS):
Please go to and create a new account. You can use any ZIP code from UK, it doesn't matter. Once done, give me here the NIC handle please.

I placed the order for the VPS. Once it's provisioned I'll send you more instructions.

You should see now the VPS under your account at OVH[1]. I'd recommend re-installing the OS using your preferred linux distribution.
You can take a look at this blog post[2] for tips regarding the management of your new VPS.

I pointed the DNS for your domain to your VPS IP, and I also added the www record. If you need in the future more DNS changes, feel free to open a new bug in - Server Operations component.

I will setup Google Apps tomorrow or Sunday and update this bug.

Thank you Gherman and Ash,

Are you talking about email addresses. If yes, do we need to annoy you all them time we need a new address for a community member.

Aniruddha Adhikary ( is leading our website design and development. He needs to edit CNAME records. Is that okay and possible.

please, go ahead and ask what you need.
