    I just finished installing ispconfing but during that last steps of the install when its asks you for the host (Example:please enter the host name: E.g. www) i entered www the first time then my domain (Example:please enter the domain: E.g. xyz.de) monitorwaves.no-ip.org but it said it could not reach my system at this so the next time it gave me Please enter the host name: E.g. www i left it blank and then entered my domain name monitorwaves.no-ip.org and it finished the install. I belive i need to correct this inorder of ispconfig to funtion properly.

    You can correct this setting in ISPConfig under management > server > settings.

    Ok i change www to monitorwaves and domain to no-ip.org . I still cant reach the site at http://www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org/ . I can only reach it at http://monitorwaves.no-ip.org/ and when i get there i get the server index index of / . I have restarted ispconfig and restarted my computer but there is still no change. I have had this problem for such along time i am thinking about just forgeting about computers all together :(

    Even a wrong hostname in ISPConfig does not make the server unreachable, so your problem must be related to another issue. I guess this issue is a wrong setting at no-ip.org and not your server.

    If you run:

    and
    Are both addresses reachable and shop the same IP address? If not, check the configuration of www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org at no-ip.org.

    I will play with it some more and see if i can find out more. My server has been off, so that could be why its unreachable.

    OK i got part of my dns working. Now when you enter http://monitorwaves.homelinux.com/ it takes you to the right directory. (NOTE: Yes i got a new dns name) but i still cant figureout how to get the site to work with www

    Here are all the domains i have for the site:
    Host:monitorwaves
    Domain:homelinux.com

    Host:
    Domain:homelinux.com

    Host:www
    Domain:monitorwaves.homelinux.com

    Host:www
    Domain:homelinux.com

    Even with all these domains i still cant access the site with the www. Also a friend of mine wants to host his site with this dns 32bit.at/KLowD9x http://www.32bit.at/KLowD9x/ i cant get it to even redirect to the right direcoty like i did with monitorwaves. How can i fix these problems? Thanks again guys!

    Did you create these host & domain names with the option "new site" or did you entered them into the co-domain field of an existing site?

    It must work when you enter the hostname domain names into the co-domain field.

    Forwarding from one seperate site to another site on the same ISPConfig server is not possible.

    Host:
    Domain:homelinux.com

    Host:www
    Domain:monitorwaves.homelinux.com

    www.monitorwaves.homelinux.com doesn't exist in DNS:

    Code:
    dig www.monitorwaves.homelinux.com
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.4 <<>> www.monitorwaves.homelinux.com
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 2710

    If homelinux.com allows you to create www.monitorwaves.homelinux.com, do it now, if they don't allow it, then you're lost...

    It adds another level of security, but it's no replacement for chkrootkit and rkhunter.
