You must point your DNS records to your server's public IP. It's best to get a DynDNS hostname and then create CNAME records for your domains that point to your DynDNS hostname.

Your router must be configured to forward all needed ports (like 22, 25, 80, 110, 143, 443) to your server.

I canīt make work the server, I use the perfect server tutorial, this:

But I canīt make the server works, my hostname is but if I put "dig" I obtain in status: SERVFAIL, id: 2044

What can I do?? I have configured no-ip account but I canīt access to web server, if I put the no-ip address, I can see the "It works" message, if put the same continued by :8080, I can access to ispconfig 3

I create a CNAME to the domain to the no-ip account but I canīt access.

Who can be the trouble??

A redirect does not work - you must create a CNAME record for that points to

Did you try both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

Please check your router's firewall settings.
