Code:
Set the hostname manually, e.g. server1.example.com, and enter a gateway (e.g. 192.168.0.1) and up to three DNS servers (e.g. 145.253.2.75 and 193.174.32.18):
Should this be set to ie. 'www' or should this be set to ie. 'www.domain.com'?
www.domain.com

But, it also asks to set the domain name...
The host name would be www, the domain name domain.com.

No, you only have to make sure that the host name/domain combination you enter during the ISPConfig installation exists in DNS and can be pinged, otherwise the installer stops. If you have no DNS entry, then leave the host name empty and enter your IP address as domain.

The Fedora host name should be server.domain.com, not just server. The naming conventions differ a little bit between Fedora and ISPConfig.
