    Hi folks,


    I have satimis.com registered with goddady.com

    Hereunder are the contents of;

    $ cat /etc/hosts
    #      localhost.localdomain   localhost localhost.satimis.homelinux.com localhost mail.satimis.homelinux.com
    #  sever1.example.com   server1 mail.satimis.homelinux.com mail
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
    $ cat /etc/hostname
    Please advise how to edit these files so that people evokeing "www.satimis.com" can visit the test homepage on this server. What other files I have to edit as well.

    is this machine behind a router? Cause i just see a private IP in the conf, but not the official (

    And what is the actual problem you experience? If i access i just see a page of godaddy, so i guess, that you have to configure your machine's official IP adress with godaddy...

    After login I looked around on godaddy.com site and can't find out where to put the DNS hostnames and their corresponding IP addresses.

    Hi falko,

    Tks for your link.

    godaddy.com has modified their pages so they look something different from the manual.

    Host	Points To	     TTL	Actions
    @   3600
    If adding "ns1", what will be "ns2" IP? ""???

    I still can't resolve how to make "satimis.com" pointing to my server with static IP "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" and Virtual IP".

    How to delete the item wrongly inputed there? Waiting for 24 hrs before I can delete it?

    Edit 1:
    I don't have ISPConfig installed on the server. I have Webmin running on the server. Do I need installing ISPConfig? Tks.

    That depends on you. Do you own
    If you just want to run one DNS server, then ns2 can also point to (provided that GoDaddy accepts it).

    You must make your router forward all necessary ports to the IP address

    It doesn't matter if or what control panel you use.

    Hi falko

    Problem solved by making "satimis.com" on godaddy.com pointing to which is the WAN IP as named by my ISP. The same is the fixed/static IP., not as informed by ISP. The latter is named as Virtual IP by ISP. I think it is gate forwarding.

    No. It is owned godaddy.com. I'll create;
    I'm prepared to run DNS serve, only one. As interest what will ns2 point to?

    ISP blocks all ports on Virtual IP to on the router. I'm not allowed to touch it without login and password that is my headache. I have to ask ISP to release them. On my request ISP unblocked ports 25 and 80 on

    I'll talk to ISP about the router on following points;

    1) Although the router is on loan to me which is part of the contract, it is a component of my local area network[LAN]
    2) I have absolute right to manage my LAN unless the router is a component of ISP's server network.

    Any advice? Or points to add? TIA

    Besides if purchasing a new router, what information are needed from ISP to configure a router in my LAN.

    What is the reason for ISP to control clients' router? TIA
