In the past days I successfully configure my vanity Host Names. Yesterday after few days I enter to my webpage and I see that I can’t enter, I check the NS, and from Mexico (where I live) and it resolve to my droplet, and from my droplet on (NY1) it can’t resolve.

But it’s weird, because,.net,.org,,.mx,.biz, etc… are to & and only & .net works the other doesn’t work (have the same NS).

Have you tried, this?<br/><ol><li>Logon to WHM;</li><li>Select Tweak Settings under Server Setup;</li><li>Put checkboxes next to both: Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that are not registered;</li><li>Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that resolve to other servers (ie domain transfers);</li></ol>[This can be a major security problem. If you must have it enabled, be sure to not allow users to park common internet domains.]

If you want to use cPanel, you have to use your own nameservers. See “Branded nameservers”: <br> <br>You don’t need two VPSes, just use the same IP address for ns1 and ns2.

This has come up before, but I can’t find the thread right now. Try typing the following into your web browser (or Google):<pre>cpanel nameserver</pre><br/>and search through the various old threads; and you should (hopefully) find the workaround.
