Creating a webmin vhost with an external domain


I am still fairly new on the linux scene but have managed to set up my own VPS using my own nameservers. I am using webmin and have got it working so I can add vhosts using my domain (obviously the default) and over vhosts using subdomains but I can't get it working for vhosts using an external domain.

I have changed the ns of the external domain to and and set up the vhost but no luck.

When going to the domain name (in this case I get this:

The server at can't be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.
All answers appreciated! Leon.
