I build a webserver following the HOWTO:http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu-11.04-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: Code: [email protected]:~$ dig mx mydomain.com ; <<>> DiG 9.7.3 <<>> mx mydomain.com ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 13719 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;mydomain.com.

If I don't do this can I then still create domains names for others using my server? Please advice. p.s. Yes I am still learning .
