    Good morning everyone,

    I installed a fresh server with ISPCONFIG2; I am willing to host my personel sites on it,I am getting an IP that i do not know how to configure on my PC yet, I am confused what to choose:

    1- using a nameserver ns.mydomaine.tld or
    2- using the IP : xx.xx.xxx.xxx and point my domains to it.

    I need some one to help me which one to choose and how to completely configure the nameserver and the IP step by step since i am newbie.

    Thx in advance,

    Do you want to run your own nameservers (you need at least two), or do you host your DNS records somewhere else (e.g. at your domain registrar)?

    I have two ip's and i assigned them to one domain i have with enom;
    ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com. see the problem is i do not know how to connect to this server using these IP's i only connect to the local IP:192.168.xxx.xx.
    but how to configure the main ip to the system, what are config files i need to change and how.

    You must create A records for ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com at the registrar, and then you can use ns1 and ns2 as the nameservers when you register a new domain.

    Dear Falko,
    I did these steps my big problem is that my nameservers and domains are not pinging, Do i need to change config files on the system,i did not change any all i did was pointing the ip to the local one on the router. Also in ispconfig i put the nameserver under ISPManager/server/settings/.

    Thank you for the tutorial Falko, I followed all the steps but my sites are always pointing to "Apache HTTP Server Test Page powered by CentOS".
    What is the solution,

    Is your server behind a router?

    Hi Till,

    Yes my server is behind a router.

    On the /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf the document roots are :
    Document Root /var/www/web11/web for xxx1.com
    Document Root /var/www/web10/web for xxx2.net
    but when i type ant site, it goes to : Document Root /var/www/

    Thank you for your help.
