I have had websites hosted on different hosts and now I am trying out Virtualmin.I have a very basic question about DNS.
Below are three screenshot. Screenshot1 shows the options on my registrar, which happens to be NameCheap. Screenshot1: http://i40.tinypic.com/jqgf80.png
So, I used to click on the option called "Domain Name Server Setup", which would take me to this Screenshot2 and set up the Name Servers that my webhost gave me. Screenshot2: http://i44.tinypic.com/vrd374.png
Well, now I want to be my own host for 3-4 websites I have and some for friends. These are all non-critical, non-e-commerce websites. Where do I set up DNS now on the NameCheap control panel? On "Domain Name Server Setup" screen (screenshot2), or under the "Advanced" option called "Nameserver Registration" (Screenshot 3) or both? Screenshot3: http://i40.tinypic.com/65605v.png
I do have a full working Virtualmin installed with the .sh script. BIND is installed. So, let's assume my main domain for people to "sign up" for hosting is www.webhost.com. I do want a website for this domain, on the computer Virtualmin is installed. If I have my own DNS server running at www.webhost.com, then for one of my sites, like www.mysite1.com, I would go to "Domain Name Server Setup" and would enter ns1.webhost.com under. But the question is what options do I set up for my main www.webhost.com domain?
