Thumbs down subdomains and zoneEdit

I finally gave up running a DNS server on a dedicated box where i have ISPConfig installed.
Using ZoneEdit is proving to be safer and less complicated.

Questions:
-When creating a site in ISPConfig how, shall i have the DNS record checkbox ticked or shall i leave it blank?

-On ZoneEdit i currently have wiki.musmap.com and musmap.com pointing to the IP of the server. musmap.com is working fine, but wiki.musmap.com, which was set on ZoneEdit just a few minutes ago, is not working. Shall i wait for the record to propagate?
Shouldn't it be automatic since it's only a subdomain?

Thanks,
Nuno.

As you dont run a nameserver, dont enable it.

DNS takes up to 48 hours to propagate.

Though i believe it is no longer part of the game, how can i completely disable the nameserver?
Shall i unregister it or is it enough to halt BIND?

Nuno.

Yet another disturbing doubt.
Will i have to create an A record in ZoneEdit for each subdomain created in ISPConfig?

It's enough to stop BIND.

Yes, or you can create a wildcard DNS record (e.g.
Code:
*.yourdomain.com. A 1.2.3.4
)
