    Hi all

    I'm looking for an easy serveradmin tool for a dedicated server with the following spec:

    5 ips available

    2 ips for nameservers (

    3 ips for and

    (I'd like to setup the primary and 1 secondary nameserver on the same machine as the 3 domains are hosted on; a 3rd secondary ns would be externally)

    1 question: is it possible to configure bind with ISPCONFIG for above case?

    2 question: is ISPCONFIG suitable to setup ip-based hosting as I'd like that if a user enter only the respective ip-address, they will be sent to the domain that the ip address stands for and not to a general "SHARED IP page"

    3 question: can I setup domain pointers with ISPCONFIG: i.e. -->

    1) Yes. But thats not ISPConfig specifc, just configure your bind ro listen on the IP addresses you want. But there is generally no need to have 2 dedicated IP addresses for bind, as you can run websites as well on these IP addresses. The webserver and bind are listening on different ports.

    2) No, ISPConfig uses namebased hosting.

    3) Yes, this is named co-domains in ISPConfig.

    1) Can we use ISPconfig to configure that part of Bind?
    2) Is there a module that we can use or setup on the box itself, without the help of ISPconfig, to set that up?

    The following link should help to configure the nameservers manually:

    ip-based support would be great. is there another fine free server panel that works on centos 5?

    I was impressed of ServerCP lite but it doesn't support Centos 5 yet.

    ServerCP lite?

    Isn't that guide to work with Webmin only?

    What do you mean with that. You want to setup ISPConfig without ISPConfig :confused:

    LOL, apologies.
    I meant to say, is there a way we can setup namebased hosting, with or without ISPconfig's help?

    ISPConfig uses always namebased hosting for all websites. To setup namebased hosts wirhout ISPConfig, you will have to create the vhost definitions manually in your apache configuration.

    How'd we go about doing that for IP-based hosting?

    You will have to setup IP based vhosts manually in your apache configuration. IP based vhosts are not used very often by ISP's because IP's are short.
