DNS problems

  • Posted August 1, 2013


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.

Hi nightflash, no because I want vanity name servers <br> <br>Hi Pablo I just change it and do it like the guide Vanity Nameservers, but now my problem it’s that cpanel detect the domain to digital ocean IP and my server IP it’s different, so I can’t park domains, cpanel said me that the domain it’s on another server. The only way to solve this it’s with branded name servers right? <br> <br> <br>

Did you follow the instructions in this guide <a href=“”>How to Create Vanity or Branded Nameservers with DigitalOcean Cloud Servers</a>?
