    Hello guys,
    Thanks again for your work!!. I really apreciate your dedication.
    I have a conceptual problem. I am setting a web hosting server with "The perfect setup for debian 3.1" and not everything is OK, I can't understand completely the last part of the installation process and DNS settings. I read some threads but can't find exactly whay I need, sorry.

    I have a registered domain ( pointed to and
    This two DNS servers are going to run on the same machine where ISPconfig is installed.
    ISPConfig will be reached at, my web page will be at and I have five IP's available that I am going to use this way:

    IP#1 .........
    IP#2 ..........
    IP#3 .......... ISPconfig

    (IP#4 and IP#5 are free for now.)

    -- How can I do it?.

    Here is what I did:

    *Please enter your MySQL server: localhost (always localhost or I should use
    *Please enter your MySQL user: root
    Please enter your MySQL password: *******
    Please enter a name for the ISPConfig database: ispconfigdb
    Please enter the IP address of the ISPConfig web: IP#3
    Please enter the host name: www
    Please enter the domain:

    Then I wrote on my browser and I can't reach ISPconfig, but if I write I can see the login screen. I don't know why.

    1) Are my answers correct?.
    2) How can I setup and
    I should go to "DNS manager" and create a new master zone ( with ns1 and ns2 records using IP#1 and IP#2?.
    3) To host my main web page I have to create a reseller account and then the new site or is there a best way?.

    I hope to be clear because english writing is some difficult.

    Best regards,

    Make sure that exists in DNS and that it points to your ISPConfig server.

    Have a look here:
    You can either create a reseller, or you can create the web site under the admin account.
