I have a question about DNS in ISPCONFIG 3.

When I try to set ns1.maindomain.com and ns2.maindomain.com in the settings for the newdomain.com and later check it with intodns.com.

It says nameserver
ns1.maindomain.com.newdomain.com and
ns2.maindomain.com.newdomain.com
which doesnt work.

Is this a bug or am I supposed to create A records for ns1.newdomain.com and ns2.newdomain.com for every domain?
I think you need to add a dot behind the hostname of the nameservers. I have experience the same problem while adding a mailserver to my domain.

You should add a dot after it like ns1.maindomain.com. and ns2.maindomain.com.

The hostnames should have its own A record.

Don't ask me why. I only noticed it when I added a MX record to my own site and when I could not send an email to that domain.
