Default DNS questions

Hi all,

I'm not so familiar with hosting / dns techniques...
So I have a question :
Do I have to check Create DNS / Create DNS MX when creating a new site, if I use name based vhosts on a VPS? I can see that without any DNS settings sites are working for now...

Although I will have 3 ip addresses at all, one for ISPconfig apache, one for the hosting apache server, and I need one to be able to use ca for ssl on a site that served by the hosting apache.
Will I need to use DNS settings when all the three ip's will be operating? Or should I use them now as well?

Sorry for the lamer questions, I just could not find any information in the manuals on cases when I should use DNS settings...

Thank you,

You only need ISPConfig's DNS features if the ISPConfig server is the authoritative nameserver for your domain. If someone else (e.g. your domain registrar) runs the nameservers for your domains,, you must manage the DNS records in your registrar's web interface.

You can find out about the nameservers for a domain by running
dig ns yourdomain.com
