Post /etc/resolv.conf - ISPconfig 3 manual

Hi,

System Info:
Ubuntu Server 10.04
ISPConfig3 v.3.0.5.1
Single Server Setup
NameServer: Only Primary ns1.mydomain.tld

Regarding ISPConfig3 Control Panel
(In the manual page 223)

(ISP Control Panel)
System - Server Config - Server
Network Configuration (checked) The network configuration option is only etc. etc.

(Manual page 223)
Nameservers: Fill in the IP addresses of nameservers that this server will use to do DNS lookups. You can specify multiple nameservers by separating them with a comma. These should be the nameservers from
/etc/resolv.conf .
Example:
145.253.2.75,8.8.8.8

( /etc/resolv.conf on server )
nameserver: 127.0.0.1
nameserver: 192.168.1.1
domain: home
search: home

Question:
1. Why is the nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf not the same as in the ISP ControlPanel(8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4)? - The (Network Configuration) is (checked)! Shouldn't be updated automaticly?
2. The second nameserver mentioned is my gateway. Is this right?
3. domain, search - is this right?
4. Would it not be better or more correct if I use my ISP's nameservers instead of Google's ???

(Bought the manual - answer nowhere to be found)

Looking forward to your response

Kind Regards,
Dan Hansen
