    I finally gave up running a DNS server on a dedicated box where i have ISPConfig installed.
    Using ZoneEdit is proving to be safer and less complicated.

    -When creating a site in ISPConfig how, shall i have the DNS record checkbox ticked or shall i leave it blank?

    -On ZoneEdit i currently have and pointing to the IP of the server. is working fine, but, which was set on ZoneEdit just a few minutes ago, is not working. Shall i wait for the record to propagate?
    Shouldn't it be automatic since it's only a subdomain?

    As you dont run a nameserver, dont enable it.

    DNS takes up to 48 hours to propagate.

    Though i believe it is no longer part of the game, how can i completely disable the nameserver?
    Shall i unregister it or is it enough to halt BIND?


    Yet another disturbing doubt.
    Will i have to create an A record in ZoneEdit for each subdomain created in ISPConfig?

    It's enough to stop BIND.

    Yes, or you can create a wildcard DNS record (e.g.
    * A
