comment Bind9 - How to serve my www?
Your domain is currently setup to be served by the nameservers of your registrar, Ispeed. You are now setting up your own nameserver. So either you need to tell Ispeed to change the nameservers of your domain to your IP (or IPs preferably), or you need to login to their control panel (if they have one) and start to manage your domain there. In the latter case you don't need to run your own nameserver.

Does bind log anything about the SERVFAIL you receive?

comment Bind DNS rate-limit and values for responses-per-second and window
He doesn't specify if it's a recursive or an authoritative server. For an authoritative server rate limiting still is important. Also, it's not just 5 requests per second, it's 5 of the same answers per second, and even corrected if you generate different answers. Generally the 5 requests-per-second setting is fine on bind (because a legitimate server also asks other questions in between).

comment Bind DNS rate-limit and values for responses-per-second and window
Ratelimiting webserver responses might nog be such a bad idea in certain cases. But DNS is mostly UDP, which is easily spoofed (unlike http), so rate limiting is necessary prevent you nameservers from being used in amplification or reflection attacks.

comment set — $(cat /proc/loadavg)
Correct. This script does not change anything on a global level. Changing environment variables in a shell only affects other processes started from that same shell, but in this case, even that won't happen, as $1, $2 and so on get reset when starting a new process.

comment “example.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi” subdirectory constantly appearing instead of base url in Google Chrome
Once you get to press ctrl-F5, it's already too late. The redirect will already be read from cache and executed, so you'll end up refreshing the redirect target. It's the same with cached 301 responses really.

comment “example.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi” subdirectory constantly appearing instead of base url in Google Chrome
If it's working in "fresh" browsers right now, everything should be fine. It usually means you visited that domain while it was already pointing to the cpanel server, but the cpanel server was not yet configured with that domain (it was not parked or used for an account). Cpanel then shows this redirect page. You could consider replacing the default cpanel placeholder with something more sensible without a redirect. That way it might still be cached for a while, but then at least a refresh from the browser will get the new content.
