Vanity Hostnames & cPanel Problems

  • Posted July 25, 2013

Hi to everyone,

I just create my droplet, and I just configure it, I follow the guide from Digital Ocean to get my vanity hostname, I do it with (I got it on Goddady).

On cPanel I have activate Bind, and Edit the DNS Zone of to have the 3 A record with the 3 NS records (also on digitalOcean DNS records)

It works perfectly on that domain, but when I direct another domain ( to this server and I ping to it said “ping: cannot resolve Unknown host”. I done this 36 hours ago. It usually takes 1-2 hours to do this, I just modify another domain to my actual server and it’s working.

Also I create an account in the cPanel for (because it’s also a webpage) and I try to connect via FTP and I can’t ‘’ not resolving…

Any idea? Thanks for everyone Best,
