Question

Adding new account in WHM not working.

Posted September 26, 2014 2.6k views

Hi Guys,

Im a newbie here.

I installed cpanel(trial version) on my first droplet. Point my first website and mail which is working, no problem at all.

But when I tried to add a new domain under WHM->Create a New Account which is all went fine. But I cannot access this newly created account using the domain name.

Here is my set up:

  1. Added the new domain to my WHM. (assuming domain.com)
  2. change the nameserver of domain.com in godaddy.com to point here: NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM, NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM, NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM

But when I tried to access the domain.com on my browser it says “server not found”.
Is there anything I need to configure to make this domain.com work?

Thanks,
Myke

I had the same problem as you when I started at DO. What solve my problem was set up vanity name servers. So basically every time you want to point a domain to your droplet the name servers will be ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com (yourdomain.com being the domain that is assigned to your droplet)
