Nameservers don't resolve
Hi there,
Using ISP CONFIG 3 on a centos dedicated server.
Tried to add a second domain to the server but can't get the name servers to resolve.

1. I added a new client
2. Added a new website
3. Loggen on the new client
4. Added all the necessary records

This is what the records look like

When I go to my isp to change the Nameservers records of domain '' it tells me 'Nameserver ( and registered'
What am I doing wrong ?

Thank you,

Hi 121,

Your DNS records aren't correct. Your records for should look something like this:


A  ftp          IP
A  ns1          IP
A  ns2          IP
A  mail          IP

Your MX record is fine. If you want to map webmail to mail, you do the CNAME record like this:


CNAME  webmail    mail
Hope that helps get your DNS records fixed.
