I’m trying hard to setup my miab but can’t get passed the

It would be great if you could help me with trouble shooting.
The following describes my latest (of many) installs on a fresh machine:

create new server + ip on hetzer. com
name: “box.mydomain. com”
ubuntu 18.04 size CX11
create new public ip “box.mydomain. com”
assign public ip to server
add to /etc/network/interfaces.d/60-my-floating-ip.cfg
iface eth0:1 inet static
sudo service networking restart
use ssh + public ip to lock into server
install mailinabox with floating ip

System Status Checks
- Public DNS (nsd4) is not running (port 53). <==== Locks like the main issue.
- Nameserver glue records are incorrect. The ns1.box.xxxxxxxx-xxx. com and ns2.box.xxxxxxxx-xxx.c om
nameservers must be configured at your domain name registrar as having the IP address 78.xx.xxx.xx.
They currently report addresses of [Not Set]/[Not Set]. It may take several hours for public DNS to update after a change.
- This domain must resolve to your box’s IP address (xxxxxxxxxxxxx / xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) in public DNS but it currently resolves to [Not Set] / [Not Set].
It may take several hours for public DNS to update after a change. This problem may result from other issues listed above.
- Your box’s reverse DNS is currently static.xxxxxxxxxxxxx.box.xxxxxxxxxxxx. com (IPv4) and [Not Set] (IPv6),
but it should be box.xxxxxxxx-xxx. com. Your ISP or cloud provider will have instructions on setting up reverse DNS for your box.
