Giganet, thanks for the help and sorry I reply so late, I haven't had the time to check the ansewer.

I had everything in dnsexit configured right according to the image you post, but I read an error on the same page stating that I didn't point my registrars DNS to theirs. I did so and I'm just waiting for the authorization to have my domain point to ns1.dnsexit.com and ns2.dnsexit.com. I hope after that authorization is ready my domain will actually point to my IP.

On the other side, I want several domains to point to the same IP (the same server) because I'm planning to use apache Virtual Hosts in order to set up a Web Hosting server. Do I still need to configure bind even with dnsexit pointing at my server? On the other side, would you recommend any specific control panel like ISPconfig?

Hello Upyr

Sorry for the long delay of response, my data lines have all been down since last Tuesday and were just handed back to me by Verizon not long ago...

Falko took care of you though I see..

With respect to a WWW manager I do like ISPConfig many times above PLESK!
I had PLESK, whenever you used their forum you could positively count on a zero response.

ISPConfig is very well supported by the community here at HTF.

Make sure and run the stable version though!
