    Apache vhosts in ISPConfig are name based, not IP based. You will have to access the website with the domain name you entered for this website. The domain name must be registered in DNS and pointing to the IP address of your server.

    is your ISPConfig server the authoritive nameserver for If not, you will have to change the nameserver records at the authoritive nameserver to point to the IP address of your server.

    Thanks for quickly answer,,

    No ispconfig isn't authoritative nameserver, I was change all records of authoritative nameserver to my ip, mail works perfectly but www goes to /var/www my DNS configuration:

    ip (internal for virtual hosts)

    Records>> -->>

    Isn't correctly

    Thank's a lot

    What's your real domain name?

    If you use internal IP addresses like, thne you DNS records will work only within your LAN!

    This type of redirection wont work.

    You can either create a website and dont use or you register at a provider that supports dynamic DNS. If you register at, they can point an dynamic A record to your server.

    I think this is not a good idea, you will have to point the nameserver records to your dyndns domain. DNS servers shall be alwys available. Also you will need 2 different dyndns host addresses, one for ns1 and one for ns2.
