Unhappy How can I host a domain/website on a fresh ISPConfig installation

I am a complete novice in ISPConfig. I got a dedicated server from iweb.com

I register my domains through godaddy.com

Here is what I am trying to do.

1. I have a domain myfriendsarcade.com
2. My server is already up and running and ISPConfig is working without any problems.

My question is how do I host the domain and any other future domains
on my server.

I tried setting up the domain and created name servers etc, but when I tried updating the nameservers in Godaddy it said, nameservers not registered.

What am I doing wrong ?

Can you guys help or are there any tutorials that shows how to do it step by step.

If you have set up name server on your ispconfig then you need to have this server entered in the global registry I believe. In my case with fast hosts you just need to email them and litterly ask for your server to be entered and they will do it. Just let them know the name eg ns1.yournameserverdomain.com and ns2 (they usually require two and don't normally mind that they are both on the same machine) and then give them ip address of your server.

You then need to change the name servers for the domain to ns1.yournameserverdomain.com and the ns2.


If that's all getting a bit complicated, just create DNS records with go daddy for your domain pointing to your ispconfig server IP. This might be easier if you only have a few domains to host.

by my experience

assume that you have 3 IP address on your Dedicated server

I have choose two of my IP address to be DNS Ip address.

1. go to your goaddy domain control panel at summary host

create ns1.yourdomain.com to ip address
create ns2.yourdomain.com to ip address

2. back to your ISPConfig control panel

- put IP Server by system --> Edit Server IP (you can add as you want)
- go to DNS menu create tempate DNS Zone and here is my DnS Zone and DNS Record template


- Add on Zone and Recod for your server
3. go to client click on edit client-Templates Create one template I call it Maintemplate
click on add client fill out inforamtion --> click on limits choose master template as Maintemplate
and click Save

I hope my three step and give you some idea. This is just only my experience only you can find out the you like.

Note: when you change any DNS you need to wait about 48hours
