I registered my domain at 1&1. They offer "DNS Management". First, I registered a domain that I will use for technical issues only, not for web sites or emails (scratchcohosting.com). "DNS Management" was free, so I created an A record that pointed my domain (scratchcohosting.com) to my ip address (22.214.171.124). I left the MX record assigned to 1&1. Then I created a subdomain (ns1.scratchcohosting.com) and I also pointed this to my ip address (126.96.36.199) again leaving the MX record to 1&1. One name server will have to do for now, since I only have one computer running each component of ISPConfig. Once everything is settled to my IP address, Will I be able to set up my own domain (scratchco.com) with ISPConfig? And if so what will I use as my A and MX records inside ISPConfig? Does it matter what additional Nameserver I use while configuring my domain (scratchco.com) inside 1&1? I am also concerned with my /etc/resolv.conf file. Is there anything wrong?
