    Good morning,

    I'm hoping that someone on here can help me.

    I host a few websites using ISPConfig 3. I have registered one of these sites with GoDaddy and have registered a nameserver with GoDaddy to point to my server.

    The problem that I'm having is that I wish to use one name server for all the sites that I am hosting.

    For example, I registered with GoDaddy and pointed it to my server. Another site that I have been asked to host is called I have changed the DNS settings for this domain to use as it's DNS server.

    When I browse to I can see my site however when I browse for I get the default Apache page saying "It Works!"

    Can someone tell me what settings I need to add to my DNS settings so that I can use to access the site.

    I hope I've made this clear and I really hope that someone can help me out.

    Thanks in advance.

    I found a post here ->
    that helped me figure out what was going wrong.

    For anyone else in the same situation this is what I did to solve my problem.

    I created a new DNS zone called
    I added the nameserver as

    I added two A records.
    A ns1 myipaddress (enter your IP address here)
    A www myipaddress (enter your IP address here)

    Once I did this the site was then available and could be viewed.

    I just wanted to say also thanks for all the hard work that has been put into ISPConfig.

    If you use the ISPConfig 3 DNS wizard, then the A, MX and NS records get created automatically.
