DNS setup in Plesk 7
Posted on 2004-11-10
I have to move some websites from one server to another. I used to work in an ensim-environment where I had a super admin one level higher. Now I'll have to use Plesk 7 Reloaded and I'm the super admin myself. The first serious thing to do is to setup the nameservers. These are already registered to internic, so I have my ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com. They point to the first 2 ip adresses in my range of 8.
Now I would need some help, in fact a step by step guidance through the rest of the process, since the Plesk manual isn't very clear about this. What do I have to do to make the whole thing working?
A few questions:
Are these 2 first ip's to be set to exclusive or shared?
What do I have to change in the DNS template zone and how am I to do it? Please specify every step for every kind of record (A, MX, CNAME and NS).
Do I have to list 'mydomain' in the domain list? Is it to be set as default domain?
As a matter of fact I don't understand this stuff very well. So, please, make things a bit clearer for me and have some patience. Once this is set up the right way I don't have to bother again. I'll grant a lot of points to this question, because I expect a bit more than just a few lines. Tnx for helping me out.
