    Just a remark on reverse DNS.
    We have a mail server on a separate IP. The IP is listed in ISPConfig's interface list but there is no web attached to it => no reverse DNS record is created then.
    I have configured it manually in the zone file, and I also found out that just adding a
    $GENERATE 1-255 $ PTR ip-netA-${0,3,d}
    block will not help as it will generate SERVFAIL for the entire zone. When using the Generate-statement it seems you will have to manually exclude IPs that are already manually defined.
    Just my 2c for today.

    You dont have to create a website for DNS records, just use the DNS-Manager for this. Even the ISP-Manager part uses the DNS-mamnager in the backend for creating the DNS Records.

    I'am talking about reverse DNS too. The reverse zones where added automatically if ISPConfig is authoritive for a domain.

    If you create a zone in the DNS Manager, then ISPConfig creates the reverse records automatically. Have a look at your named.conf and the files referenced from there.
