Default Does ISPConfig work with co.nr domains?


I just installed ISPConfig after following Falco's tutorial on setting up Ubuntu 7.04 as the 'perfect server'.

Before today, I was running Ubuntu 7.04 with the LAMP stack, but I reinstalled Ubuntu due to a misconfiguration issue. When I was running that way, I had all of my hosted sites (two belonging to me, one for a friend) using free co.nr domains (www.freedomain.co.nr). They work like this:

I have a name registered on www.dyndns.org, which is shadowserve.ath.cx, I use it to access my server. Now, however, with ISPConfig, typing in http://shadowserve.ath.cx tells me it's a shared ip. Normally I can access my hosted files like this, for example: http://shadowserve.ath.cx/mysite/ and www.mysite.co.nr both should point to the same site.

To configure my co.nr domain, I open my co.nr control panel (on the co.nr site), and set the domain to point to http://shadowserve.ath.cx/mysite/. This doesn't work anymore, and I suspect this is because co.nr (free) domains are not supported by ISPConfig.

Is there a way to use the co.nr domains? Since ISPConfig seems to only allow connections to a site via its domain, rather than the server's, I'm not sure. I prefer using a control panel for my users but I'd like to have similar functionality, if not the same, as I used to.

Any suggestions?

If you are able to manage DNS-records within the DNS-manager of your domainregistar, it should be able to point the A-record to the IP-address of your server. You must point to the public IP-address of your server when it is behind a router. With ISPConfig you can manage any domain name you want.

ISPConfig supports all domain names that can be used in the internet.

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