No real success with re-installing cPanel.
I set the nameserver for example2.com at Namecheap to:
And when I direct my browser to example2.com it take me to the root directory of the server IP, 126.96.36.199. Not to the directory I have set up for that domain in cPaenl, which should be 188.8.131.52/~example2.
I chose cPanel simply because I am somewhat familiar with it (was the basic CP I've used for years, and I don't mind paying a couple dollars per month for it), as it is installed on my dedicated server so I like being a little consistant should I need to use it as a dev server too. I'm not a server administrator by any means, just trying to learn the basics to get what I need completed,as I focus more on web programming.
I don't really have any desire to sell hosting, except set up some companies I've created websites for on it. But at this pace, I might have to jump off DO and set up a VPS at another host who I can get multiple IPs at, so I feel more comfortable at setting up a private DNS on.
