Exclamation Help on ISPconfig configuration!!

I have recently installed the ISPconfig on my server. Ir runs a ubuntu 8.04. I have followed the Perfect server installation. Everything was fine in the installation and i got it up and running. However, i did not understand somethings overthere. When i create a website, which ip address i have to put the 192.168.0.1(router access) or the actual ip of my server, which is 192.168.0.7.

Also if i point one domain from, let's say godaddy.com , to my internet ip address it will go to the port 80 and not go to the actual website, which i added to the ispconfig.

Also, how to setup the DNS server of my server to work as follow:

IMAP -> imap.banzaiwebstudio.com
POP3 -> pop3.banzaiwebstudio.com
SMTP -> smtp.banzaiwebstudio.com

if you require more information, please, contact me as soon as possible

You will have to use the IP of your server.

As your server is in a private network, you should use the DNS server of the provider were you ordered the domain name and not the ispconfig DNS server.

sorry, but i did not quite understand your answer.

so i dont have to point the A dns record from my domain name provider to my IP server. But just the nameservers.

on management -> server -> settings:

the ip address: is the Router ip, lets say: 192.168.0.1 or my server which lets say: 192.168.0.7.

the ip list: which ip i have to list.

when you click on a web site: it appears a list of settings, so which ip do i have to put for this website.

when i buy a new domain and want to use on this site on my server, so i guess that i have to point to my ip address and than the ispconfig do the job of managing the domain names.

what about if i dont have a domain, so i guess that i can use a subdomain, like http://user.mydomain.com/ or http://mydomain.com/user/. How to do that?

Sorry, but i am very new at this subject.

All i want to do, is open a web design company and host my web sites locally, whitout to worry a hosting plan from somewhere else, also this could be really good to generate a extra cash.

You must use 192.168.0.7 for your web sites. You must then configure your server to forward port 80 to 192.168.0.7.

For your DNS records, you must use your router's public IP address.
