    This seems like such a simple question, I'm surprised
    I can't find the answer.

    Can I use external nameservers instead of running
    BIND? Why don't I just tell all my customers to register
    a domain name and point their nameservers to my ISPConfig

    In that case, what do I do for the settings in DNSManager.
    The manual is quite silent on what all those blanks really do!
    Server: Server1 (what's that?)
    Domain (SOA) (ehh?)
    IP address (of what?)
    Nameserver1 and 2 (which would do what, exactly?)
    or the New Master and New Slave buttons. What do those

    Anyway, I'm just hoping that I can use my afraid.org nameservers and avoid all these unexplained blanks
    in ISP config. All I need is for the client's GET request to
    come into my Apache server, and I can take care of the
  2. till

    You dont have to use the nameserver in ISPConfig.

    Just dont create DNS records in the ISPCOnfig DNS-Manager, thats all :)
