    After setting up my first server ever, I've recently installed ISPConfig. The next step would be to set up my domain, but I haven't found a tutorial that would seem to suit me, and honestly, I don't know what I should search for.

    Having no fix ip address, I have a dyndns domain, and my registrar offers the option for either their name servers with an A record to enter, or the use of my own name servers.

    What should I choose? I've looked a tutorials like or but I don't know how to proceed.

    (and sorry for this noob-ish question)

    2 options

    1. Address (A) record at domain registrar will have to be changed everytime IP changes. If this is easy enough it's not a problem.

    2. NS record at domain registrar can be filled in with server names; the first 2 are free then you pay for more after that. These can be changed easily when your IP address changes. They even have dyamic DNS download.

    Hope that helps.
