I build a webserver following the HOWTO:http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...04-ispconfig-3
I have my own domain name registered 1 month ago at register.com and it is tied into my static public IP. My intention is to host some more websites for others.
The command dig mx mydomain.com shows:
xxx@ubuntu:~$ dig mx mydomain.com
; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> mx mydomain.com
;; global options: +cmd

Should I still use the DNS server and create the DNS records for my domain using ISPConfig, or is that not needed?
If I don't do this can I then still create domains names for others using my server?
p.s. Yes I am still learning
