    I am having trouble getting my domains to display in the web browser. I currently have my domain pointing to the 2 name servers that I set up on my plesk server. I have the dns record set for the primary domain for the server account. I was wondering if this is how I should set up the dns record for each additional domain in order for the browser to display the websites correctly.

    <domain> NS ns1.mynameserver.com
    <domain> NS ns2.mynameserver.com
    <domain> A <ip>
    webmail.<domain> A <ip>
    ftp.<domain> A <domain>
    mail.<domain> A <domain>
    <domain>. MX 10 mail. <domain>.
    <ip>/24 PTR <domain>

    here is how i have now my dns templates, they work flawlessly you should try them

    A <domain>. <ip>
    A webmail.<domain>. <ip>
    MX <domain>. mail.<domain>.
    A mail.<domain>. <ip>
    A ftp.<domain>. <ip>
    NS <domain>. ns1.yournameserver.com.
    NS <domain>. ns2.yournameserver.com.
    PTR <ip> <domain>.
    TXT <domain>. "v=spf1 a mx ptr"

    best regards,

    is this under the domain or under the server settings?

    Can you explain what these two records do in your DNS template?

    PTR <ip> <domain>.
    TXT <domain>. "v=spf1 a mx ptr"

    Why use this instead of <ip> / 24? Here's what I have for mine:

    <domain>. A <ip>
    <domain>. MX (10) mail.<domain>.
    <domain>. NS ns1.landeserve.com.
    <domain>. NS ns2.landeserve.com.
    <ip> / 24 PTR <domain>.
    ftp.<domain>. CNAME <domain>.
    mail.<domain>. A <ip>
    webmail.<domain>. A <ip>

    Also, what's the difference between the different MX records?
