Question

Problem adding addon domain in cpanel

I have installed cpanel on centos and changed my domain name server to ns1.digitalocean.com ns2, ns3. I am able to go to my main domain and every thing works fine with it, but when I try addind an addon domain it gives the following domain

Using nameservers with the following IPs: 141.0.170.89,198.199.95.114,198.199.120.125 Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to this servers nameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ips.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver.

Now I am a complete noob in linux and vps , the above message for me is a rocket science. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hello, all

All you need to do is to allow the creation of remote domains via WHM’s Tweak Settings.

Login to WHM --> Server Configuration --> Tweak Settings --> Domains tab and look for the Allow Remote Domains and enable it.

Allow creation of parked/addon domains that resolve to other servers (e.g. domain transfers) This can be a major security problem. If you must have it enabled, be sure not to allow users to park common Internet domains.

Once this is enabled just go ahead and add your domain.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
