You can use server1.chelsev.com or whateveryoulike,chelsev.com, but you must make sure that it exists in DNS and points to your public IP address 213.120.80.10.

You don't need to register it as you've registered chelsev.com, but you must create a DNS record for it in the authoritative name servers. Maybe 1&1 has given you a web interface where you can create the appropriate DNS entries?

No, you must provide real DNS servers. You can take those from the tutorial.

Setting The Hostname

echo server1.example.com > /etc/hostname
/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname

Should this read for me

echo ns1.chelsev.com > /etc/hostname
/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname

or

echo chelsev.com > /etc/hostname
/bin/hostname -F /etc/hostname
ns1.chelsev.com

That's normal, it happens always when you set up quota for the first time. Ignore it.

When this is typed in i am asked lots of questions. Are any relivant to the install and working of ISPConfig I.E:Servers hostname should this be "WWW "or "ns1.chelsev.com"?
You can use the default values. This is not relevant unless you want to use TLS, and even ten, it will still work.

Don't type in anything. Leave it blank.

You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.
-----
1. Country Name (2 letter code) [XY]:GB
2. State or Province Name (full name) [Snake Desert]:Gloucestershire
3. Locality Name (eg, city) [Snake Town]:Cheltenham
4. Organization Name (eg, company) [Snake Oil, Ltd]:Chelserv
5. Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) [Webserver Team]:Technical
6. Common Name (eg, FQDN) [www.snakeoil.dom]:
Do i have to put in www.chelsev.com as a awnser to the highlighted line?
Yes, you can do that, but you can as well accept all default values.
