I've setup a domain I have as NS1.DOMAIN.COM for my other sites. But there seems to be an issue with actually getting it to be viewed as a website. I'm currently using VESTA and my registrar is GoDaddy. Any suggestions about things I should check into would be much appreciated.
That's an odd thing to do.
I suggest you don't use ns1.domain.com as a web server. It's probably your name server, which points to a different address.
Tell me your domain or post your zone (DNS config) and I'll look at it. There's probably something wrong.
Also, maybe you should post your web server configuration as well... I suspect you could have more than one issue.
If you don't put enough information into your question, people can't help you. And people will down vote you and vote to close your question.
Things you should check: Your DNS config and web server config. More advice is pending. Waiting on details.
