Default how do i configure my ispconfig dns to work with my registered domain?

Hi, am gabby and new to ispconfig. I am trying to host my website on my newly installed ispconfig server but getting a little confused with the ispconfig dns zone settings with my newly registered domain ns with godady. Pls how should i configure the dns zone under ispconfig e.i using the dns zone wizard,

DOMAIN: .............. is it my registered domain with godady?
IP ADDRESS: ........... is it the ip address of my registered domain with godady?
NS1: ..................... is it the ns that godady issued with my domain?
NS2: ..................... same ns?
EMAIL: .................. any email id or id with my domain name?

NOTE: i am getting ftp access to my account i created on ispconfig.
Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.

Best Regards,

I asume that ISPConfig server has DNS installed and that your newly registered domain is gonna be NS1 and NS2.

DOMAIN: .............. is it my registered domain with godady?
--- Yes

IP ADDRESS: ........... is it the ip address of my registered domain with godady?
-- Your IP of the ISPConfig server

NS1: ..................... is it the ns that godady issued with my domain?
NS2: ..................... same ns?
THose can be external DNS or yours, if it's yours than you need to setup two A records (ns1 and ns2) that points to your server. After that setup you can change to yours DNS in GoDaddt controlpanel.

EMAIL: .................. any email id or id with my domain name?
Valid email of your hostmaster or yours.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. ISPconfig has dns installed but my new registered domain is not NS1 and NS2 but rather NS11 and NS12.domaincontrol.com

Should i insert NS11 and NS12.domaincontrol.com in full in to the NS1 and NS2 portion in ISPconfig 3 DNS zone?

I want to get this working with the external NS of my domain registrar (Godady) first and then later configure my own DNS ns and change it in Godady...

If you gonna use theirs DNS servers than there is nothing to setup in ISPConfig DNS, because all DNS queries are going through GoDaddy dns servers. There you can setup A, Cname and MX records.

well, since i will still configure my ISPconfig 3 DNS later,
I have decided to take the time to configure it once and for all, and have configured DNS zone (A, CNAME, and MX) in my account on ISPconfig but couldnt link my domain to my DNS zone on the ISPconfig server. When i tried changing nameserver under my godady domain account it stated Nameserver not registered, i tried again to register my own host with the DNS zone i configured on ISPconfig in my Godady domain account and entered my ISPconfig server IP which is 192.168.*.* but it also stated ENTER VALID IP Please which point am i missing here to get this working...

192.168.*.* is a private IP address - you must use a public one.

If your server is on a LAN, it will have an internal IP address. This will start with 192....etc etc. This address can only be seen by computers in the same local area network. However, your server will also connect to the internet whether it by by a router that forwards traffic to it, or a modem that connects it to the internet... this device will have a public IP address.

How do you connect to your ISPconfig server through a browser? If you put in an IP address eg 93.99.33.56, that is your public ip address ( assuming your not connecting through your lan).

If you use a domain name to connect to it like yourdomain.com:8080, try putting the domain name into this site:
http://cqcounter.com/whois/
It should return your public ip address.

Allowing zone transfers allows another name server to 'get' the zone records. Like a backup name server. <<--correct me if i'm wrong.

No. You must use the public IP only in your DNS records.

These are the IPs of your secondary nameservers that are allowed to fetch the zone.

Thanx Falko. The public ip address, is it that of my isp or the one godaddy accompanied with my domain after i registered.

This is how my setup is --->

ISPconfig 3 server IP: 192.168.254.20 connected to an ADSL router to Internet.

My registered domain name: g-techcomputersystems.com with NS11.domain control.com, NS12.domaincontrol.com with IP 68.178.232.99 under my godaddy domain manager account.
With this information pls help me do the dns setup allover again.
