DNS (MX) Entries - Gmail For Your Domain

Feb 7, 2007

I'm running a dedicated server with Plesk 8.1

For all newly created domains, they will automatically adopt a DNS template which I've set up in Plesk. But for my own domains (not clients) I've changed my MX entries in my DNS Settings section to point to the server of that of Gmail (Google). The primary server with the highest priority is "aspx.l.google.com"

To get to the point...
I receive emails on the Gmail interface, which is stored on the Gmail server, though I have a slight problem when it comes to local emails. In other words...when my server sends out an email to myself (either from a contact form, daily log files, etc...) I don't receive the emails through the Gmail interface, but rather through my POP server, which is logical, since my server is most probably configured to use "mail.yourdomain.com" and not "aspx.l.google.com".

Question :
How can I have both incoming emails (from other domains/servers) and local emails (from my own server) go through the Gmail server? I'm guessing that I'll have to edit Sendmail or PHP or something, though I'm not sure, that's why I'm posting this.

Sorry if the post is a bit confusing. I tried my best to explain the situation, though if you have any questions, please respond with them.

Use A GMail Account? Watch Your Domain

Nov 26, 2008

After reading numerous accounts (27 and counting) of people's domains being stolen I decided to investigate the situation more closely. What follows is my personal investigation.

Without jumping to any conclusions as to how all of these domains were hijacked, I gathered the facts and sat back to see where the common denominators were.
All of the domains had GMail accounts listed in whois.

Many of the domains were hosted with GoDaddy

Many of them had Alexa rankings of less than 10,000

While the GoDaddy connection was interesting, the fact that all of the hijacked domains had GMail accounts stood out as the real common thread.

It's still not clear how the hijacker was able to obtain access to the GMail accounts it is clear that using a GMail account for your domain registrations may not be a wise decision. We have seen infectious code on websites designed to either steal cookies or check to see if the visitor also has GMail opened in another window.

A few cases involved visiting a webpage while GMail was opened and the webpage doing a POST to a GMail interface and injecting an email filter into the visitor's GMail settings.

Typically the injection would include filters that would automatically skip the inbox and forward emails from register.com, godaddy.com and dreamhost.com to another GMail email account.

Then with forwarding set and knowledge of the registered email address, the hijacker would have use GoDaddy's website to obtain the customer number, which requires a verification email. Armed with that information, the hijacker would go back to GoDaddy and have an Authorization Code for password reset, sent to the registered email address.

The password would be sent to the email address, which would be forwarded to the hijacker and then they could move the domain to another registrar, change the website and benefit from the traffic to that website.

Or in some of these recent cases, the hijacker asked for $2,000 in order to "give" the domain back.

How did this happen?

Creating a filter in your GMail account sends a request to the GMail server farm. The request is an obfuscated URL with each section identifying the filter, the account, etc.

Many of the parameters passed in the URL can be generated accurately but one parameter needs the cookie from the account holder's computer. They can obtain this quite easily with any general cookie stealing technique (there are many).

What can you do?
For starters, this isn't the first exploit of GMail accounts. I would switch all of my domains to be registered to a different email address.

Secondly, I would pay the extra money to have your domain information listed as Private. This way your contact information will not show up on whois searches. GoDaddy offers Protected Registration if you're already listed with them.

Third, if you do use GMail, check your filters often. And check your deleted items as well. You never know what you might find in there.

Anyone here have any stories to share about domains hijacked?

Are These DNS Entries The Same?

Dec 16, 2007

I just moved to a new vps and I have "ns1.domain.com" and "ns2.domain.com" entries for my primary and secondary nameservers as well as simply "ns1" and "ns2" .... are these the same thing? Is there any harm in having both? Any feedback appreciated!

Multiple DNS Entries

Mar 16, 2008

I have been searching through threads on WHT, but have not found anything really conclusive regarding this.

If I were to list two A records for the same domain name on my nameserver, such as:

www.mydomain.com ->
www.mydomain.com ->

How would most browsers handle this?

Would it only try the first entry, or would it try the first entry, and if the specified IP is unavailable it would try the second entry?

APF Entries And CIDR

Sep 25, 2007

I have been trying to figure out how to allow a range of IPs with APF. I finally came across the CIDR page on wikipedia and read it though, and now I get it. I just want to confirm one thing before I implement this.

I run a gameserver where I want to allow everyone in the world to connect on a certain port, so can I use this entry?

From what I understand, using the /0 CIDR suffix basically means "all IPs". So technically I could use ANY IP address for the source with the /0 suffix and it will work right?

Nameserver Entries

Sep 11, 2007

On of my client has registered his domain (austasiapackaging.com) with BlueCentral.com . BlueCentral also provides them with mail service.

Now I have to provide web hosting for this domain. Should I change the nameservers entries or should I change the A Record? Or do I change them both?

Automated MX Records For New DNS Entries In WHM

May 18, 2009

I run my own Mail Server.

Everytime I create a new website account in WHM I am required to go in and manually edit the DNS record to include the MX record of my mail server.

I would like to streamline the process and need a way to make WHM automatically include my MX records every time I create a new account. Is this possible?

Apache 2.x Config Entries

Apr 13, 2009

I used to have a dedicated server running Apache 1.x (1.3 I think) and in my httpd.conf there were entries about keepalives, maxservers, minservers etc.

I've now got a VPS from FutureHosting, which is brilliant. In my httpd.conf file though, there are none of the above entries. It is running the latest version of Apache (2.2.11).

Are all the keepalive / minservers settings handled automatically in 2.2 or do I just have a default setting and maybe need to add them manually?

I don't have any load issues so haven't touched the config so far.

Lossing Entries On My /etc/localdomains

May 23, 2008

I discovered this forum googling and i think is a very good community, so i registered and well... as any noob, started to ask questions U.U im new in this stuff of web hosting... though i know some things... i dont have experience, its my first job in a small web hosting company, and we have a strange problem, we loss entries on /etc/localdomains when we migrate domains from one server to another and nobody knows why... we can fix it trough deleting the dns entry and creating it again on the target server. I know its kinda messy (for me at least) i hope u can give me at least an insight of where the problem might be.

We do the migration trough the migration tool of WHM

Here is some data about the target migration server, if u need something else... please tell me.

Registrars Not Accepting DNS Entries

May 16, 2007

I have set up a pair of name servers, the first one is accepted by the registrars and the second one is not. They have been configured identically as far as I can tell.

It appears that some test is run by the registrars to see if the name server can be used.

Is there any way I can find what test it is and get a way to run it to see what the problem is?

Are there scripts or sites where I can run whatever type of test it is and know what the problem is?

Add Email Accounts With Mx Entries

Mar 21, 2007

I just transfered an existing client of mine to one of my servers but he has MX entries.

I entered the MX settings in Cpanel for him but im wondering if I have to actually add all the mail accounts? Im assuming since he is using MX entries then he is using a seperate server to handle all the accounts. Am I right in my assumption? Do I have to add all his mail accounts into cpanel?

Really Odd DDoS Or Something -> No Log Entries, Over 2200+ PHP Processes

Apr 9, 2008

WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.18.3-C21703

CENTOS Enterprise 4.6 i686 on standard - WHM X v3.1.0

Few days ago i upgraded cPanel, and then Apache, PHP5, eAccelerator, hadn't updated in ages.

Server worked lightning fast compared to old (PHP 4, older Apache, no eAccelerator), and seemed stable.

Few hours later, server is unresponsive, it took over a day to get the server on the status that i can even see what's happening!

Downgraded back to PHP4, removed suhosin. Still happens. Reworked all the configs, and took all resource limits so low that it survives that, PRM gives 12secs time, enough apache processes etc. Maximum clients lowered to 50 etc. you get the general feel what i did, just to see what's going on.

Now the server survives those 2200+ processes somehow and comes back responsive in some minutes. Killing all PHP processes alone does not solve the problem, but need to restart other services too. All services tend to start crashing when this happens.

Thing is, they are specific user PHP processes, ALL of them, and thus HTTP Request (suPHP), but no log entries for those, i do not see where from they originate, what PHP files are being requested, reworking individual PHP files for that account didn't help at all etc.

I cannot just suspend this account, it's an high importance account for my own needs.

This account gets ~2½million requests a month regularly, and server can handle that.

There was one new reseller account setup for someone else the day this started happening (i upgraded to PHP5 just after accoutn creation) but i think that's unrelated.

Any ideas how to start pursuing a resolution for this? It has started happening more frequently than before, so i'm also suspecting a DDoS, ubt there should be log entries.

Is it possible the requests come so fast that Apache just don't have the time needed to write log?

HDD is the bottleneck actually on this server (ty Leaseweb, you guys gave me the worst HDD of the size you could find and want to charge 25euros a month extra for a proper HDD of same size, 250gb!)

Apache :: Access Log Missing Entries

Feb 15, 2013

I have a lamp server setup with a couple of vhosts. Investigating the log files for a situation I found that it seems to be missing some entries. The access log contains a long list of files (images and css) requested by the client regarding a request to a page (having a specific url as referer), but the actual request is missing. The url called is an automatically generated url that should only be available as an unsubscribe link in emails send to a specific user, thus the use of it in the logs is limited

At the same time I can find log entries in our database that I am 99.9% sure can only originate from this specific URL being requested (never say never). These log entries are stamped just before all the auxiliary requests having the url as referer, but again the actual request is not to be found.

Plesk 12.x / Linux :: DNS TXT Entries Not Updating

Feb 10, 2015

I am running
OS Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Plesk version 12.0.18 Update #34, last updated at Feb 10, 2015 01:52 AM

I have created a few websites using plesk and i have the dns acting as the primary . This server acts as a primary nameserver for the DNS zone mywebsite.co.uk

When i add a txt record the dns is updated but it never resolves so my DKIM and SPF records are never found. I have checked my syntax for the records and all are fine. My domains are hosted by stratoservers. Is it there fault or mine. Should i change providers so i have more access to the domains dns or should plesk be doing that for me...
