    My ispconfig setup is up and running on ubuntu server 8.10. Everything is working fine as far as the installation.

    I bought 8 different domain names from godaddy. However I am only going to focus on getting one domain to work right now.

    I went under the control panel in Godaddy and forwarded it to my ip address Then when I test and all I get is The shared IP addess page.

    I've read forwarding won't work, I also created a A record under godaddy that points to my ip address. When I tried to set the nameserver in godaddy to it wouldn't let me and said "Nameserver not registered"

    So I've hit a brickwall for now. :confused:

    You can not forward a domain, this will not work. Remove the forward and create a dns A-Record instead that points to your IP in the godaddy nameservers.

    here's a couple of screenshots. Do I need to do anything special with ispconfig? Since it says name server not registered.

    I think I figured out what I was doing wrong.

    I read that tutorial, but mydaddy has rearranged everything. I found 'add a host' at the bottom of my domain manager, and added ns1 and my ip address. Which it said it could take 48 hours. But I will know if that what I was doing wrong. Funny thing is if I type in the browser it brings up my index page.
