You just need one additional paid domain for naming your servers (server1.additonaldomain.com, server2.additionaldomain.com, etc.).

thanks falko,

my website domain is smartracksolutions.com, can i use smartracksolutions.info as email server domain & smartracksolutions.us for ispconfig server domain? email server and ispconfig server are both installed in one PC at the moment (by following "The perfect server ... " instruction).

the reason i ask above question is that when i do "ping www.google.com" and "ping mail.google.com", from the return, it looks that the domains need to follow some naming standard.

for "ping www.google.com", what is the difference between domains "www.google.com", "www.l.google.com", "lax04s01-in-f147.1e100.net", ip address "66.102.7.147"?

for "ping mail.google.com", what is the difference between domains "mail.google.com", "googlemail.l.google.com", "lax04s01-in-f17.1e100.net", ip address "66.102.7.17"?

it is much appreciated if you can help with some explanation.

root@quicksu-laptop:# ping www.google.com

PING www.l.google.com (66.102.7.147) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from lax04s01-in-f147.1e100.net (66.102.7.147): icmp_seq=1 ttl=51 time=199 ms
64 bytes from lax04s01-in-f147.1e100.net (66.102.7.147): icmp_seq=2 ttl=51 time=198 ms

root@quicksu-laptop:# ping mail.google.com

PING googlemail.l.google.com (66.102.7.17) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from lax04s01-in-f17.1e100.net (66.102.7.17): icmp_seq=1 ttl=51 time=201 ms

You just need one technical domain, so either smartracksolutions.info or smartracksolutions.us would be enough. You can then use subdomains to name your servers.

hello falko,

thanks for the reply, but a bit confused when combining your previous replies together.

at the moment, i only have one paid domain, smartracksolutions.com (for my website). do you mean i have to create another paid domain, e.g. smartracksolutions.info, for my ispconfig server? and create subdomains under this ispconfig server for other servers, e.g. mail.smartracksolutions.info for mail server etc?

if it is, do you have any information on how to do this, e.g. a web link?

thanks.

If your registrar runs the nameservers for smartracksolutions.info, you can create the necessary DNS records there via a web interface.

thanks falko,

to add a email server in this server, i modified the /etc/hosts file as below.

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
192.168.0.100 ispconfig.smartracksolutions.info ispconfig
192.168.0.100 mail.smartracksolutions.info mail

and modified the /etc/hostname as below.

ispconfig.smartracksolutions.info
mail.smartracksolutions.info

yes, will create an A record for mail.smartracksolutions.info as well.

this should work for the email server, right?

thanks.

There should be just one hostname in /etc/hostname.

hello falko,

when i used dynamic ip address before (with ****.dyndns.org domain), i installed squirrelmail within ispconfig control panel and could login into squirrelmail through default 81 port, could send or receive email occasionally, but have never been able to make the whole email system work perfectly.

now i use the static ip address (with smartracksolutions.com/info domain), installed squirrelmail within ispconfig control panel, but cannot login into squirrelmail through default 81 port anymore. is there any compatibility between ispconfig (ispconfig 2 actually) and the squirrlemail (version 1.4.20 at the moment)? moreover, can you help to provide some information to make the whole email system (with squirrlemail as webmail) work?

thanks kindly.
