    I have some domains with witch is the only one to provide mx domain name.

    This provider does not have any dns server. What I must do is to set one or more ns servers.

    I've add the domain to my ISPCONFIG server admin page but the NIC.MX tells me that the server is not "authoritative" for that domain.

    How can I fix this ?

    I'm running the latest ISPCONFIG and ubuntu server 10.04

    Best regards

    Please ask the support how to make a nameserver authoritative for a domain.

    But they don't have any DNS server of any kind ...... they only provide the domain name without any support behind ......

    I just have to point the name servers that will fully take charge of my domain .... witch I want to be my ISPConfig/bind server ....

    Nothing ..... I've just added a zone in ISPCONFIG ....

    I must add a NS record that point to it's public IP ?

    I've just added
    : a A record (ns1 and the ip of my ispconfig server)
    : a A record (www and the ip of my ispconfig server)
    : a ns record (my domain as zone and ns1 as value)

    but nothing ..... the registrar says that it's not authoritative

    You need an A record for the domain name with a dot at the end. I have one .mx domain with the following records and it works with ISPConfig 3 (MyDNS).

    A  	ftp  	0  	
    A 	mail 		0 	
    A 		0 	
    A 	ns1 		0 	
    A 	ns2 		0 	
    A 	www 		0 	
    MX 	10 	
    NS 	0 	
    NS 	0 	
    TXT 	v=spf1 a mx -all 0 	0
