So you need to setup DNS entries, as you appear not to have a relation between your domain name and your IP. Are you authoritative for your domain or do you use a provider (like GoDaddy)?

Either post your domain name or IP, because there must be a DNS mismatch. If you don't want to post, execute yourself the following commands
Code:
dig -x <nn.nn.nn.nn>       <-- Your external IP
dig <domainname.tld>     <-- Your servername
You should get matching results in the ANSWER section. If not, your DNS is not setup correctly.

As an exception, you could sent me a PM. Include your wanted/used IP number and your wanted domain name. I will post the resolution here so others looking at these forums can benefit as well. It's up to you if you want that. If not, don't sent me a PM.

As I suspected the DNS is not setup correctly. the domainname and all it's subdomains point to the external IP address of an ADSL connection.

The used 192.168 range in ISPConfig is for internal LAN usage and should not be exposed on the internet.

Being behind an ADSL router, I suggest to forward on your router the ports 80 (www), 25 (mail) and 21 (ftp) to the server. How to do that is dependent on your ADSL modem. Be aware, that sending emails directly from your server (after you get it up/running) is like sending from a dynamic IP, which many receivers don't like and in fact block. Consider to setup a mail relay solution.

After forwarding port 80, www.domain.tld should show you a site. Beware, that this is the only site you can have. I'm not sure but IIRC ISPConfig needs to have the external IP address configured (not your server!).
