    Confused DNS

    I want my own DNS, but no himself really I eat to configure them and if this is possible .

    I have my server with a router and the local address is

    I have an own I.P.: xx.xx.xx.xx

    My server hostname is : server1.example.com

    I want in my provider of domains that all I have registered point to my own I.P. : ns1.example.com - ns2.example.com

    This my current config, and not work :


    Server : server1.example.com
    Client : mynameclient
    Zone (SOA) : server1.example.com
    NS : ns1.example.com
    email : [email protected]
    Refresh, Retry, Expire, Minimum and TTL (default with ISPConfig 3)
    Allow zone transfers to these IPs (comma separated list) (blank)
    Active : checked


    A mail xx.xx.xx.xx 0
    A ns1 xx.xx.xx.xx 0
    A server1.example.com xx.xx.xx.xx 0
    A www xx.xx.xx.xx 0
    MX server1.example.com mail.example.com 10
    NS server1.example.com ns1.example.com 0
    NS server1.example.com ns2.example.com 0

    I Prove:

    server1:/# nslookup example.com
    ;; Got SERVFAIL reply from, trying next server
    ;; Got SERVFAIL reply from, trying next server

    ** server can't find example.com: SERVFAIL

    Would they be so kind from explaining me with these data of example like to configure correctly the Zones DNS?

    Thanks in advance.

    You missed to add the dots at the end of the records. If you need an example how the correct records look like then use the dns wizard in ispconfig 3.

    Thanks Till, for your response, I add the dots at de end but not work.

    A questions:

    In the RECORDS DNS A IP-Address that I have to put?:

    1 My own I.P. :xx.xx.xx.xx
    2 The I.P. of the Router
    3 Or who ?

    And in DNS, ZONE (SOA) that I have put:

    1 My Hostname and domain : server1.example.com.
    2 My Domaian only : example.com.

    Thanks again.
