    You have to create a DNS record (A Record) for that points to the IP address of your ISPConfig server.

    Is that a DNS record created using ISPConfig. Can that DNS record also point to a port number.

    If your ISPConfig machine is authoritative for your domain, then yes. If someone else manages your DNS records, then you have to tell him to do this, and if you've bought managed DNS services, then there should be some kind of web interface where you can create your A Record.

    You must create an A Record for that points to your IP address
    xx.xx.xx.xx. Afterwards you can use your domain to access ISPConfig:

    Ok I see thats fine and should work now without me doing anything.

    What about is there a way to.... when a visitor goes to (without specifying port) and when it gets to my server it gets diverted to port 81 and so gets to the ISPConfig pages.

    If you see what I am getting at I want to make it easier for users to get to the portal without knowing port numbers.


    I could just put a link on my main home page and the link has got the web address and port number.

    Any suggestions.....

    You can use a PHP script that redirects your users:

    ("Location:"); /* Redirect browser */
