The ITS Group Information Technology DNS control panel is a very
powerful tool allowing you to use many features of DNS
through a simple web interface. This document describes a
standard DNS setup which is suitable for hosting web sites
on the RaQ server. For the example, we'll discuss someone
with the username "testuser" who wants to host "testdomain.com"
on her RaQ server which has the IP address 10.0.0.1
Step 1: log in
http://www.ITS Group Information Technology.com/config/ and enter your
username and password.
You will then see the main DNS control panel screen.
Step 2: add the domain name
Click on the "DNS Administrator", enter the domain name
you would like to add and click "Add".
Note: a domain name has the form "testdomain.com" not
Enter the IP address of the domain.
You will then see the domain overview.
Step 3: add the MX record
The MX record specifies where to deliver mail for the
domain. Under normal circumstances, it should be delivered
to the RaQ server. Click on "Add MX" and use 5 for the
Step 4: add the wildcard
Under the standard configuration, all subdomains are set
to the same IP address as the main domain. Click on "Add"
next to the "Non-matching DNS requests are not forwarded"
text. This is more efficient than adding A records for each
Step 5: add A and MX records for www
Because of the way the RaQ servers work, we must specify
A and MX records for the www subdomain. Click on "Add A
record" and set www to the same IP as the main domain.
Now add the MX record like we did before.
The DNS configuration for testdomain.com is now complete.
Allow one day for the changes to take effect and the site
should start resolving (assuming that you have added it on
the RaQ itself).
