I have a dedicated server with WHM 11.23.2. I am in the process of "attempting" to change the hostname for a group of websites and also the nameservers.
Let's say for practical senses that these were the old details: Hostname: abc.example.com Nameservers: ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com
I changed in the following sections of WHM..
Server Configuration -> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup -> Hostname to 123.newsite.com
Networking Setup -> Hostname to 123.newsite.com
Server Configuration -> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup -> Primary Nameserver to ns1.newsite.com and then...
Server Configuration -> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup -> Secondary Nameserver to ns2.newsite.com.
Networking Setup -> Nameserver IPs. I deleted the old ones and created the two new ones: ns1.newsite.com and ns2.newsite.com.
I have double checked that this information is still there. Obviously newsite.com is listed as a domain/account. However, example.com was naturally the first one associated with this server.
I performed a server reboot, apache reset etc.
This was three days ago. I assumed it had all changed over. Until I (stupidly) remembered that I hadn't changed the goDaddy information to point to these new nameservers. I panicked thinking all the sites (six of them) would be down. However, they weren't. When I tried to change the nameserver information for a domain in goDaddy it came back with errors... it would only accept ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com.
So, I did a tracert to the IP address of the server and indeed it comes back as abc.example.com. Every domain is associated with that static IP.
I can't even find anywhere where abc.example.com is listed within the WHM. All the new values are listed... so, where is it pulling this from? I thought the reset of the server (as a graceful reboot) would resolve this issue.. it hasn't. I've rebooted twice and awaited the thirty minutes for everything to get back online. No success.
The zone for the root domain splinteredmedia.net is missing, or could not be read. The ip address will be read from the webserver configuration and a new zone will be created for this subdomain. Bind reconfiguring on smpl using rndc Error reconfiguring bind on smpl: rndc: connect failed: 127.0.0.1#953: connection refused Created DNS entry for ns1.splinteredmedia.net
Is the error i get when i try to add a entry for one of my nameservers.
I have cPanel on a CentOS 5.1 VPS
I am still pretty new to CentOS
how would i go about adding a zone and if somebody cpuld point me to a place where i can read exactly what it is and how to set it up i would be very grateful
I currently have a domain registered at godaddy.com
the domain is NDSuniverse.com
I've ordered a VPS at skodagroup.com, they given me WHT VPS Pro, Cpanel, LXadmin contrtol panel.
quote from e-mail Custom DNS Server Addresses ============================= The custom DNS addresses you should set for your domain to use are: Primary DNS: ns1 Secondary DNS: ns2
You will have to login to your registrar and find the area where you can specify both of your custom name server addresses.
After adding these custom nameservers to your domain registrar control panel, it will take 24 to 48 hours for your domain to delegate authority to your DNS server. Once this has taken effect, your DNS server has control over the DNS records for the domains which use your custom name server addresses.
they didn't give me any nameserver DNS....
How can i get my domain hosted onto my VPS asap? Step by step instructions really needed. thank you.
I've set up a few domains in WHM, though I noticed when I use Ping Plotter to do a traceroute on the domain, the result always shows host.mydomain.com as the last stop, instead of just mydomain.com:
Code: Target Name: mydomain.com " " 12 84 ms CWIE-LLC.car1.Chicago1.Level3.net [43.793.208.66] 13 82 ms [18.104.22.168] 14 84 ms host.mydomain.com [22.214.171.124] I was wondering, how can I configure the DNS in WHM so the last stop is just mydomain.com?
Sorry if this sounds confusing its my first time. So i have an account at ev1servers.net/theplanet.com when i signed up i was asked for a domain i could use for the servers main domain which we'll call maindomain.com, my question is when you setup private nameservers do they have to be setup for the main domain e.g. ns1.maindomain.com, ns2.maindomain.com? What i did was setup the name servers for a domain account on my server and i couldn't get it to work which leads me to believe it has to be the main domain.
I have an existing server running cpanel that I would like to change the hostname on. What I am curious about, is the effects on the rest of the server if I go and change it. From what I can tell, the current host name is being used all over the place, and I don't know if cpanel updates everything on it's own, or if I would need to manually update everything after I change the name.
