    Hi there,
    I have changed ISP and they will not give me a static IP (there is a general lack of static IPs with ISP providers in the UK on residential services).
    Currently I have, as an example in my DNS settings:


    A - website.foo.com. Data: 123.456.12.25
    A - NS1 Data: 123.456.12.25
    A - NS2 Data 123.456.12.25
    A - www Data 123.456.12.25
    MX - website.foo.com. Data mail.foo.com.
    NS - website.foo.com. Data ns1.website.foo.com
    NS - website.foo.com. Data ns2.website.foo.com

    Currently, I use an IP address but I'm looking to tell ispconfig to lookup my latest IP address. I tried to type dnsname.privatedns.org but this was not accepted in place of an IP address. How do I implement this please? Is there also a way of backing up my settings from when I had a static IP in case I get a static IP address in the future again?
