    Ok, perhaps there is an article about how to get started with web hosting. However, I couldn't find it at the moment so I make this post. Please excuse.

    Ok this is what I have.

    - A VPS with ISPCONFIG installed (all services are live: named, apache, dns, mail, ftp, etc)
    - An IP address:
    - A domain (Don't know what NS to use? Use VPS provider's name server?)

    How do I get started to host web sites with a single ip above with my own name server or the VPS provider's name servers?

    How do I set up DNS? I have followed the instructions on how to setup my own DNS with ISPCONFIG.

    What exactly do I need here? Please assist.

    Also, if I coppied this brand new VPS w/ISPConfig installed (no sites) to another VPS, what should I be editing? /etc/host ...? please xplain. THanks.

    Still need help..

    I've read the post you mentioned and I've done correctly.

    This is what I have:

    1. A vps with a single IP address

    a. what name server should I be using? is it right that I should use my vps provider dns? &
    b. what to check and what needs to do...

    Thanks so much... I m confused.

    You can create all DNS records for on the name servers and That way you don't have to run your own name servers.
