Phew... fixed it by upgrading the old virtual server system to a newer, slightly more speedy one. Networking on the old virtual machine was still broken today, and Parallels seem to have bigger problems finding the error cause. So I decided not to sit and wait here and ordered the mentioned upgrade, which then was a blank new virtual machine with nearly the same specs but on a different hardware. They mounted the old virtual harddisk into the new system so I could easily copy old config files and programs from O:\ to C:\ . Nameservers updated to the new IP address and tataaa - at 8:30pm the first visitors since 36 hours were back.
Btw, having a downtime on that domain also meant there was a one-minute-waiter for each HeidiSQL user at startup on earth which had updatechecks switched on ... ehm :oops:
