creating a website on ispconfig (domain.com) creates A records for hostname www and a forwarding (edit: co-domain) without hostname.
i would like to create cnames, so that e.g. mail.domain.com gives the same result as www.domain.com
gives. but: new cname, host 'mail' target 'www.domain.com' just shows up with the sharedip page.
the dns entry in wikipedia tells, that cname lookups will be solved to ips, but if a server uses namebased virtualhosts, the cname is looked up as hostname.
is it right that a cname directs to a different vhost than the target of the cname does? or is it just too simple for me to see?!
