If you want to run your own nameserver, have a look here:


The procedure is similar for all registries.

If you just want to have one or a few domains, you should consider to use the nameservers from namecheap (if they provide dns service) instead of running your own nameserver. DNS can be a bit troblesome for beginners.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
