    Hello everyone, I just switched to ispConfig, it's installed, everything is fine.

    On the other hand, I'm a bit confused about the default panel dns configuration.

    I have declared at my web host a type A domain >
    I point it to my VPS at, it's ok, I'm on the panel.

    Following the tutorial, I do "hostname -f" which sends me back

    As I'm not super technical, I'd like to know already if I've set up the panel and DNS zones correctly.

    For the moment I think it's easier for me to leave the DNS management to my registrar and only manage the Zones in ispConfig.

    At my registrar for DNS I have :

    My question is ; did I correctly configure ispConfig to have a certificate let's encrypt on the main site = ispConfig_default_panel

    Thank you for your help.

    I'm not sure what you meant by that. Refer to the DNS tutorial linked to in my signature, then ask again using the terminology there.
    For what? Are these your name servers?
    Nothing you posted so far helps to answer this question.

    I have just read your document, I am even more lost than before. Anyway, it's too complicated, I don't want to come Hoster, there's GoDaddy or Ovh for that, I just want to manage my sites and my hosting.

    My question was well, for the first "sub-domain" that we have to create to install ispConfig, do I put in the DNS field, the ones of my host or registrar, like Ovh?

    Here the zone dns in txt format from my hoster or registar :
    ispPanel instaled with > srv-b IN A
    First ispConf "Client / domain / site" > IN A (production server, soon >

    $TTL 86400
    @    IN SOA (2020090801 86400 3600 3600000 300)
                             IN NS
                             IN NS
                             IN MX     1
                          60 IN A
                             IN TXT    "1|"
    _acme-challenge          IN TXT    "usjAhp6jGWVxOmY8WQnyXR9HIO25i57Z2MCeS3bUzhY"    600 IN TXT    "contact@xxxxxxxxxxx"

    www                   60 IN A
    www                      IN TXT    "3|welcome"
    www                      IN TXT    "l|fr"

    Assuming your hostname -f is you add that as A record in name service in the DNS Zone.
