    it said that i need to have 2 nameserver that not belong to

    can i add this; is valid nameserver but the server not at my house.

    I hope anyone have success using and ISPcontrol, please give me a guide.

    My problem is, i cannot add secondry name server to my domain, it said that the ns already exist.

    Also, another problem ;

    The URL is not reachable!

    The installer will stop if it is unable to ping Instead of using the domain, you can leave the hostname empty and enter your IP address as domain.

    sorry to revive this old thread, but I have a friend who's domain is registered on

    We are trying to point his domain towards my server where we want to hsot his domain, but we are simply unable to set up my server as DNS on

    it always complains but doesn't give any reason I can understand :-(

    my server is set up accordingly to the perfect debian 5.0 setup and using ispcfg3 and already hosting a couple of domains and working as a dns for some of them.

    is there any special requirement with anyone is aware of?

    I even had a live chaat with one of the technicians at but he wasn't able t oshed any light on this issue, all he was repeating all over was:

    he kept talking about registering the DNS !?

    btw. I'd love to post the whole caht here, but I am unsure if that is allowed, so if anyone is willing I can PM it, I really need to be able to fix this.

    Do you run a primary and secondary server on different IP addresses or have at least two IP addresses from different networks pointing to your server? Otherwise some dns providers might refuse the delegation of the domain.

    nope not really.
    but I have a second IP so I could go that route. any hints how to do that?
    right now, I just followed the debian 5.0 perfect server setup + ispcfg3 nothing more...

    btw. right now there are 3 DNS entries at pointing to the current host and even if I change 1 of them and leave the other 2 it still doesn't wanna save :-(
    I have a server hostname of h?????? as assigned by strato (the server provider) which I use as primary DNS for the domains I host. could I i.e. "sacrifice" another domain, tie it to the second IP I got from strato and use it as secondary DNS even though both DNS and IPs would actually resolve to the same machine? does that even work somehow?

    is there a way to use 1 server for my purpose?
