    Hi guys, I just purchased a dedicated box with 1and1.com with Plesk as a Web Admin Server. My question is where I can find the DNS server for a site I created (ns1, ns2)??? My box is configure for a new domain name but I cant point it to my new server because I cant find the info. Can someone help me.

    Generally, when you create a new domain (example.com) at the registrar, you would then also create new nameservers (ns1.example.com, ns2.example.com) and point those to the IP address of your server.

    While waiting for these changes to propagate, you would then setup your domain's DNS on the Plesk server.
    (there are numerous posts which can help you on this, for example: )

    Once this is done and gets propagated, then your domain will be world resolvable.

    Note: Some registrars require you to have 2 nameservers, each with different IP addresses. If this is the case and you only have a single IP on the server, then you will either need to get another one, or use a 3rd party Secondary DNS
