Create a domain name
DNS (Domain Name System) is a mechanism designed to search a host's domain name for its IP address and vice versa, as well as other information that resource records contain. For more information please refer to the Resource records article. A domain name is a set of characters that is assigned to a specific IP address.
Ispmanager can be used as the master DNS-server.
Perform the following steps to create a domain name:
- In the Main menu select Domain names (DNS).
- In the form that opens, click on Create domain.
- The Add a new domain form opens.
- If you are working under an administrator account, the Administrators are owners option is available, or select the Owner to whom the domain name will belong;
- Enter a Domain name;
- Enter the IP address corresponding to the domain name. They are specified in the A-records of the domain zone;
- Enter the Name servers that will manage the domain zone. They are specified in the NS-records of the domain zone;
- If you want a website to be created for this domain, enter the Local IP addresses where web servers accept requests to the domain's web pages and check the box Create a website to make this domain name accessible over the Web and allow users to access it from their browsers. For more info please refer to Add a website article;
- If you want to create mailboxes on your domain, check the box Create a mail domain;
- If DNSSEC protection is required, enable the Sign domain option.
- Click Create.
- Ispmanager checks that the domain name doesn't contain the restricted names listed in Settings→ Reserved names. If a record is created for a domain name from that list, the domain name won't be created.
- If a domain name in ispmanager belongs to a certain user, only the administrator can create its subdomain for another owner.
