    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.

    Questions:
    -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 wiki.musmap.com and musmap.com pointing to the IP of the server. musmap.com is working fine, but wiki.musmap.com, 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?

    Thanks,
    Nuno.

    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?

    Nuno.

    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.
    Code:
    *.yourdomain.com. A 1.2.3.4
    )
