I need a VA to help us with many task. We have been in business 10 years and we have over 12 full time workers. I would like to hire one more person today.
I want you to read details below and i only want people who can do each task. This is a real job and i will have more work. I would like this new hire to have skills that can be applied to other areas in our organization.
1. Domain name
We need a domain name. Do you want to install the domain on a root domain ([login to view URL]) and use the basic landing page included (you can update the image, text, some colors and branding, [login to view URL]), or do you want to use a subdomain (for instance [login to view URL]) so you create a custom site on the root domain?
2. Digital Ocean
Start by creating a team in your [login to view URL] account. Name the team after your business or domain, don't name it "NowSquare" because that's how it will show up in the NowSquare account.
Make sure you're in the team account, then set up a VPS ("Droplet"). Click "Create" (green button right top) and select "Droplets".
Choose the Ubuntu 16.04.3 x64 image. Choose any size you want, the script will run on a $5/mo but if you expect some load, start with the $20/mo. You can always scale up later.
You don't need to select any additional options. Of course it's wise to select the Backups option ([login to view URL]).
After you hit "Create", a mail is sent with the IP address and root password for the droplet. Please send over this mail.
3. DNS management
We need to be able to manage the DNS for the domain you've choosen. Go to the Digital Ocean team account you've created at step 2. Click the "Networking" tab, and add your domain. Then, go to your domain registrar and update the name servers as asked by Digital Ocean. They have tutorials on how to do this for the most common registrars.
Invite info@[login to view URL] as a team member so we can configure the DNS.
4. Server Pilot
Create a [login to view URL] account, and get on the COACH plan. Send us the Server Pilot login.
Create a [login to view URL] account and send us the login.
6. Google Maps key
