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 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.
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.
At the register I've then configured host.com to use the first five nameservers for itself, the DNSMadeEasy nameservers.
For less critical sites that I host I simply point them to ns1.host.com and ns2.host.com, my nameservers.
Now, here's the twist. If I use dig to look up www.host.com I get:

What I've realized is that the actual IP addresses for nameserver host entries come from a higher level server than my own, in this case H.GTLD-SERVERS.net. I guess this makes sense but I just hadn't realized it before. It looks like I don't even need to have record entries in my DNS records for the host nameservers.
Now for the question. Can I:
1) Remove my custom host nameserver entries from my register.
2) Add entries in my DNSMadeEasy records to specify the location of ns1.host.com and ns2.host.com.
3) Use the failover provided by DNSMadeEasy to also fail-over my DNS entries for my nameservers?
I know this would require one more hop if it works but it would allow me to provide failover ability to fifty domains without having to purchase the extra domains at DNSMadeEasy.
I have a domain hosted at godaddy.com and I decided to go with VPS hosting elsewhere. I have changed the nameservers to [url]and [url]at godaddy. I set up the reseller account in WHM but the nameservers point to something other than [url]I am trying to change them to the correct nameservers by using the "Nameserver IP Assigment" tool but it is taking literally forever. Is this normal?
Should I have to wait until it assigns an IP address to use the correct nameserver?
For some reason in WHM (root) (Fresh install) I'm trying to add a name server into ":2086/scripts2/listassignednsips" area and it just loads.... Never errors or anything just loads and loads for 30 minutes and never adds it. I have already add the IP's to the server. (6 IP's)
I just took out a VPS hosting plan with Hostican, but I'm a bit confused about whether I followed their instructions properly... please be patient
Their instructions said this:
Please note that on our network a VPS is like your own private space on the network to work from. This is why we provide your account with two dedicated IP addresses that you will need to use to register your name servers with. Please view the below name servers and IP addresses that you should use to register them.
Now all my domains are registered with 1&1, who don't provide an option for creating private nameservers in their control panel. So, I created two subdomains (ns1 and ns2.mydomain.com) and then created A records for ns1 and ns2, pointing to the IPs supplied by Hostican. Then I changed the nameserver for my domains to ns1 and ns2.mydomain.com
After a couple of days, this seems to have worked - domains point to new VPS webspace and emails working. I'm worried whether I did this properly though, or whether I'm going to get problems in future with reverse dns and stuff?
I just got a VPS, (unmanaged...eh), and I seem to be having a problem with nameservers.
The current IP for the VPS is: [url]
Its set as the shared IP in WHM, so everything is pointing to that. I asked my host if the nameservers ns1.thehobbylounge.com and ns2.thehobbylounge.com should work (that is the domain for the account I am running under WHM/cPanel), and I was told that this was correct.
However my registrar gives me a validation error when I put in those nameservers for my domain.
I tried to follow these steps: [url]
But they seem to be already done...I think thats if your server isn't setup at all.
can't seem to figure out how the whole nameserver/DNS thing works.
My VPS is registered under a domain, say mydomain.com. So my nameservers on the VPS are registered under ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com, both assigned to the two IP addresses for my VPS.
The problem is, I'm trying to figure out how to get mydomain.com to actually point to my VPS from my registrar. If I type in ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com, it's just pointing to itself so it doesn't work.
2) Or should I use IP address instead of using this English name? 3) Or should I wait until all the files are uploaded and assign this IP address to this Nameserver on the new box? I wonder what will happen if I do this, because there would be 2 different IP address to the same Nameserver in this earth!
CentOS with DirectAdmin (thanks to WHT for recommending this).
My problem is, I cant seem to "make" a nameserver and get it to work?
I have attached some .jpg. screenprints which I hope will help resolve my problem.
I hope you will look at the pictures and tell me what I am doing wrong.
I have followed the guide in DirectAdmin forum for creating a nameserver, but I still got problem. (I have not been able to post in there forum, cause I have not gotten a activate mail yet, so while I wait for that, I hope you will help me.)
I have waited a couple of days for the dns nameserver to update, but it is still not working.
I was with VPS Host A. When I wanted to have my domain name on the VPS from Host A, I simply entered the primary & secondary nameserver names at my registrars site and it was done.
Host A's service was poor, so I've started with VPS Host B. they created nameserver names for me at Host B's DNS for my VPS.
When I went to my Registrars site to entered these nameserver names, I was instructed to create an A record and a subdomain for each nameserver name.
I don't understand why it was simple with the first set of nameserver settings but not the 2nd ones.
The domain name for my first vps is different than my second vps.
The nameserver names from Host A didn't include the doamin name, for example Host A's were ns1.computer.com and ns2.computer.com and the nameserver names from Host B were ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com.
Could it be that it wasn't easy the second time because the nameserver names included my domain name?
I hope your day is going good. I've been trying to fix a problem I had all week. I receive daily email notification that "example.[url]" does not resolve to any IP. However, when in WHM, it already contains Server Main Ip: 220.127.116.11. I've tried a few solutions from the web, but to no avail:
IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email. The hostname (example.mydomainname.com) resolves to . It should resolve to 18.104.22.168. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.
Some are all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check this file if you believe everything else is correct.
You may be able to automaticly correct this problem by using the 'Add an A entry for your hostname' under 'Dns Functions' in your Web Host Manager
1) Within WHM, I have the following:
-Add an A entry for your hostname (I only have one listed) Hostname: example.mydomainname.com Server Main Ip: 22.214.171.124
-Primary/secondary nameserver Primary Nameserver: ns1.mydomainname.com (A entry = 126.96.36.199) Secondary Nameserver: ns2.mydomainname.com (A entry = 188.8.131.52)
-Additional IP my webhost gave me to use: 184.108.40.206 (used in primary name server) 220.127.116.11 (used in secondary name server) 18.104.22.168
-Current DNS Zone listing: example.com (my website URL that is currently working) example.mydomainname.com (hostname I made myself that contains the server main IP) ns1.mydomainname.com (A entry = 22.214.171.124) ns2.mydomainname.com (A entry = 126.96.36.199)
2) My edit "edit /etc/resolv.conf" contains the following: Search localdomain nameserver 188.8.131.52 nameserver 184.108.40.206
Issue: I receive daily email notification that "example.mydomainname.com" does not resolve to any IP. However, when in WHM, it already contains Server Main Ip: 220.127.116.11.
I have a server with RHEL 5 installed. The problem is that the server shows the output of the hostname command as (none). I checked the /etc/sysconfig/network file and it shows the correct hostname. I also tried to change the hostname in the /etc/sysconfig/network file and restart the server. But hostname command still shows (none).
