ISPConfig3 : glue record?
I have one server, and I am trying to setup something like this:

host name:
dns server

now, during a lookup for, will be needed, which in turn again require

I am not sure how this can work.
if I add to the dns server running on my server, how will it be resolved by someone?

I read something about glue records, but it's not clear to me which server should accept the glue record for -> ip-address.

can anyone shed some light on this? :)

The glue record has to be added by the company where you bought the domain name and not in your own dns server.

Thanks Till,
it's not clear to me how that would work.

my domain is from goddaddy, and in the godaddy administration panel I can enter the host name for my dns servers, not the ip.

so, if I put there, how will anyone be able to resolve ?

I don't know the GoDaddy interface, so I think you will have to contact the GODaddy support.

Here's how it works for another registrar:
