Default VPS +ISPConfig w/o domain


I'm trying to lern how to manage a VPS and I tried to install ISPConfig.
I bought a VPS from tagadab.com with Fedora 8.
I followed http://www.howtoforge.com/fedora-8-s...p-ispconfig-p3 and after that I installed ISPConfig.

But I faced a lot of problems!

1) I don't have a domain (I could use one at NO-IP) so I didn't understand what I have to write in /etc/hosts instead of
Code:           server1.example.com server1
::1                          localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
so I left only this line:
Code:               localhost.localdomain localhost
My /etc/fstab contains the following lines:

/dev/sda1     /            ext3     defaults        1 1
/dev/sda2     swap      swap    defaults        0 0
LABEL=/boot /boot      ext3     defaults
devpts         /dev/pts   devpts gid=5,mode=620  0 0
tmpfs           /dev/shm  tmpfs   defaults        0 0
proc            /proc      proc    defaults        0 0
sysfs           /sys        sysfs   defaults        0 0
2) When I installed ISPConfig I got some errors that I wasn't able to read because of the scrolling.
To the request:
Please enter the domain:
I wrote my.no-ip.com

So, when I try to access to https://my.no-ip.com:81 or the browser fails to connect!

Sorry for bothering you, but I tried to find information in this forum and on the web without success.

Can you help me? Even a link to a guide will be very useful to me.

Thank you very much,

What if you add your no-ip domain to /etc/hosts?
Code:           mydomain.no-ip.com mydomain               localhost.localdomain localhost
Then restart and check the output of hostname -f like in the perfect setup.

You might have to install ISPConfig from scratch.
