    What is the proper ispconfig 3 procedure to configure the DNS server for 2 to 5 SOA domain name on the same static IP. Is it better to have 2 servers with two static address? I can only have one soa to work at a time.

    Do you need to create 1st soa with, ns2.mywebsite,com,
    2nd soa with,
    3rd soa with, and so forth?

    Or only one SOA record is allow in ISPconfig and from point to the respective website.

    You only have one SOA record per zone, that's why ISPConfig is only letting you put one in.

    Maybe I'm not understanding the question?

    Domain registrars require that ns1 and ns2 be on a different address...

    Domain registrars require two name servers with separate IPs. I am not allow to enter ns1 and ns2 with the same IP. How do you get away from this?

    I know that you can configure the dns with one static ip address. So please tell me how?
