Default DNS - My newbie question so I can make it work

Hello all

I installed ISPconfig using the perfect setup for Centos 5.3 i386.

The system is working just fine but I have a question about DNS since people tell me that one of my sites cannot be seen.

I set up my main site which is showing and went to name cheap.com (domain registrar) and set up DNS there pointing to my outside IP address.

Within name cheap itself now I have:

ns1.MyMainDomain.com
ns2.MyMainDomain.com

My main domain name & ISPconfig can now be reached all over the world

Problem (maybe bacause I am new to ISPconfig & stupid)

I created a new client --> Website and set up DNS within ISPconfig itself like so:

Server: Server1
Domain (SOA): AnotherDomainHostedOnISP.com
IP Address: ISPconfig's outside IP address

Under options:
Name server 1: ns1.MyMainDomain.com
Name server 2: ns2.MyMainDomain.com

Now, I can see both websites using their domain names from my main PC connected to the same router as the server.

My client (a lady across the city) said that she received this error on her browser: "The web address you have entered could not be found."

My friend across the world says that he cannot the new website either.

They can both see the main site.

Do I need to set up name servers within namecheap.com all pointing to the same outside ip addresses?

Like:

Domain 1
ns1.domain1.com = 25.369.98.63
ns2.domain1.com = 25.369.98.63

Domain2
ns2.domain2.com = 25.369.98.63
ns2.domain2.com = 25.369.98.63

Or is the problem that DNS servers update at different times all over the world and that is why I can see it from here (cable connection) - I can see it from a neighbor's DSL connection across the street & my customer & friend in the UK cannot.

Please help ... I am at wits end
