    I now host my people on directadmin and i will move them to ispconfig. i want to serve as a nameserver domain ( and so i can without forwarding register domains directly on that server.
    But now i need to move to the ispconfig but to move a .com i need to fill in nameservers but i cant cause they dont excist... cause naezox need to be it.
    So my question is how do i configure my dns is ispconfig and how do i register my first domain on it so it can be nameserver?

    Thanks already

    maybe this helps

    If you have not installed ispconfig yet....

    maybe change your
    /etc/hosts to point to your own server

    for example... localhost.localdomain localhost ns3
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

    than you can install ispconfig etc...

    After installation you can also add in ispconfig ns1 and ns2

    In ispconfig go to DNS manager
    your domain and than records
    add a new record
    and ns2
    with the right ip address

    Also you need to mail/inform your domainname company (for example
    To make ns1 and ns2 a DNS server on the internet.

    Think this is all....

    I already have ispconfig installed but i dont understand why do i need to make an ns3 in the hosts file while i dont use an ns3 i only use:

    - 2 nameservers on directadmin ( and
    - i have one .com test domain registered by opendomainregistery (
    - i can move domain on my own without need to mail
    - i can redirect domains registered on the excisting nameservers (but dont know if i can redirect een nameserver and if yes how)

    Thanks already for your help but can you explain why i need to change the hosts file for an ns3? And how can i register my first domain on this machine. i'm a little confused, cause to register a domain i need to have nameservers and for an nameserver i need a domain :D

    For your first domain, you need either a registry that allows you use IP addresses as nameservers or you will have to uses a managed thirdparty DNS service to point your domain ro your server.

    Thats the common Hen <==> Egg prlblem.

    You can not host the DNS service of a domain on the domain itself.

    For all following domains, you may use your fist domain as DNS without problems.
