Can you host a website for the same TLD as the system hostname and keep access to the control panel?

Hello everyone. I am using Virtualmin 6.06-2 with Webmin 1.910 on a host running Ubuntu 18.04. I'd like to host a website for the same TLD as my system hostname. So if my system hostname was ns1.example.com, I'd like to host a website for example.com or www.example.com. Every attempt I've had with this so far has made it impossible to connect to the Virtualmin or Webmin control panel on port 10000.

Is there a way to set this up so I can still access the control panel?

IF you're using a "subdomain" as vm.example.tld for host and website example.tld. https://vm.example.tld:10000 should work else config / settings / network or dns are not 100% ( realy hostname ns1.... for use as nameserver ? i don't know if this is possible, if so you have to take care of dns 100%)

ON which platform / Hosting are you.

( Maybe it takes some time to resolve the dns settings on the web ) dns cache ...

I think the problem I am having may be that I was not entering the https:// part first. I was expecting it to automatically redirect. I'll set this back up and try again, then post back here. Thanks for the information Jfro
