Does ISPConfig work with domains?

    I just installed ISPConfig after following Falco's tutorial on setting up Ubuntu 7.04 as the 'perfect server'.

    Before today, I was running Ubuntu 7.04 with the LAMP stack, but I reinstalled Ubuntu due to a misconfiguration issue. When I was running that way, I had all of my hosted sites (two belonging to me, one for a friend) using free domains ( They work like this:

    I have a name registered on, which is, I use it to access my server. Now, however, with ISPConfig, typing in tells me it's a shared ip. Normally I can access my hosted files like this, for example: and both should point to the same site.

    To configure my domain, I open my control panel (on the site), and set the domain to point to This doesn't work anymore, and I suspect this is because (free) domains are not supported by ISPConfig.

    Is there a way to use the domains? Since ISPConfig seems to only allow connections to a site via its domain, rather than the server's, I'm not sure. I prefer using a control panel for my users but I'd like to have similar functionality, if not the same, as I used to.

    Any suggestions?

    If you are able to manage DNS-records within the DNS-manager of your domainregistar, it should be able to point the A-record to the IP-address of your server. You must point to the public IP-address of your server when it is behind a router. With ISPConfig you can manage any domain name you want.

    ISPConfig supports all domain names that can be used in the internet.
