Default Do I need bind server running? (question from an ignorant newbie)

Hi ISPconfig gurus,

I am planning to install ispconfig 2 to run a website from home. My server (CentOS 5) is behind a linksys router.

I have these two newbie questions:

1. I will only host 2 sites. both domain names will use dns services provided by the domain registrar. Do I still need to have a bind server running?

2. My server is behind a router and have an internal IP. Do I need to use the public IP anywhere in the ISPconfig configuration?. I am aware of the port foward settings I need to set in the router, but would like to know if ISPconfig needs to know what is the public IP, and if so, where I should enter it.

Thanks a lot for your help
