Difference Between A Cname Record And A Domain Pointer

Dec 17, 2006

I am seriously confused mainly because of the way it was explained in my training at work. Can someone please give me an explantion of the difference between creating a cname record and using a domain pointer? My understanding is that they both effectively do the same thing which is allow one ip address to be used for different domains.

Extra marks given for an easy to understand analogy as i'm definately a visual learner.

Plesk Automation :: DNS Record - Unable To Set Cname For Root Of Domain

Feb 28, 2015

I have a domain hosted in a external pool of servers.I must set a dns record for www.domain.tld and domain.tld (without www). It must be done using cname.The www.domain.tld , works fine.

Ex:www.domain.tld IN CNAME xyz.otherdomain.tld.

But I am not able to set a DNS record for a root of domain.

Ex: domain.tld IN CNAME xyz.otherdomain.tld.
neither domain.tld IN CNAME www.domain.tld.

The PPA didn't allow me.It say that the host field is mandatory.

DirectAdmin Domain Pointer

Jan 4, 2009

I've been trying to get some domains parked using DirectAdmin's domain pointers. I've searched for threads about this on Google, and followed the instructions. I go to Domain Pointers -> Add New Domain Pointer. I put the domain into the form field (leaving 'Create as Alias' checked) and click Add. I've waited for a few days to make sure there were no caching problems, and the domains still didn't resolve. The nameservers on my domain registrar are set correctly. I've parked domains before on CPanel and it worked just fine.

MX Record Domain Has Expired

Feb 25, 2008

I have a site mydomain-name.com that is running and the mail server for it was mail.mydomain-name.org

However the mydomain-name.org has expired and I don't want to renew it. I just want to use the .com domain and have the mail use mail.mydomain-name.com

So i created the MX records for the .com domain .. Now my question is do i have to also contact my registar for the domain and ask them to update their records so that now it points to the new MX?

I am really new at this stuff so please bare with me.. when i do an nslookup in DOS it still shows the .org as my mail server.

mydomain-name.com MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = mail.mydomain-name.org

Is this something that needs to be changed at the registrar level?

Can I Point MX Record For Third-party Domain To Yahoo Small Biz Mail?

Jul 16, 2009

My client has a domain registered at GoDaddy and a Yahoo Small Business email package.

The only info I can find on Yahoo suggests I need to redelegate the domain's name servers to Yahoo, and I'd rather not do this if I can help it.

Is it possible to simply leave the name servers at GoDaddy and point the MX record to Yahoo's servers?

I don't see anything on Yahoo saying it won't work, but then I see nothing to suggest it will either!

Unable To Handle Kernel NULL Pointer Dereference At Virtual Address

Jun 16, 2007

My server has been kernel panicking on and off irreguarly every 2 days or so since I upgraded to cPanel 11, I'm not entirely sure whether this was the cause however I've isolated the fact it is a kernel issue. I am running CentOS 4.5 and was running Kernel "2.6.9-42.0.8.ELsmp" however switched to the kernel I was running before (2.6.9-42.0.3.ELsmp) and the same issue is still cropping up.

I thought that it may be a memory addressing issue or the like, however from looking up the issue, several C programming forums seem to suggest dodgy applications, the memory usage on the server does always seem fairly low and loads are generally healthy so this would seem to be supported.

The logs before the server kernel panics are as so:

CNAME Map On Mydomain.com To Anotherdomain.com

Aug 27, 2008

I am simply wanting to map on mydomain.com to anotherdomain.com. So i setup a CNAME on mydomain.com. Once propagated mydomain is not being picked up and is defaulting to the cpanel successfully installed screen.

I have tried this on another of our servers and this does work.

So my question is: can you use a CNAME to map mydomain.com to anotherdomain.com without having to add the mydomain.com to the apache VirtualHost ServerAlias?

It does seem like you can as i have this working on one server - is there an apache setting somewhere to block this?

Thanks in advance!

Managing Your Own CNAME Yourself On Shared Hosting?

Sep 13, 2008

Let's say I buy my domains from godaddy and have the DNS records pointed to the shared host.

From there, the shared host creates your CNAME records, or whatever you want to add to your domain name.

What happens if I wanted to control the CNAME records? Can I do this from godaddy? If so, how? Are there negatives to this method?

CNAME Email Bounce Back Errors

Oct 23, 2008

The Non-Profit I work for uses IXWebhosting for our webhost and to manage email accounts. For the past 2 months whenever we send emails to anyone @baaqmd.gov, we receive CNAME bounceback errors.
I have contacted IXWebhosting and they say that their DNS server's aren't registering baaqmd.gov and that I need to contact baaqmd.gov. Well I've been in constant contact with baaqmd.gov's IT guy and they are receiving emails just fine from outside agencies. In fact, when I send a test email using GMAIL to baaqmd.gov, they receive it just fine.

To further confuse me, we receive emails fine from BAAQMD.gov.
