I just picked up one of the cheap managed.com servers so I could learn about the world of hosting. Learning quite a bit already, but I've come to a point where I'm stumped. I have a domain name registered and I've set up my nameservers. I went into dotster and registered my two nameservers as well. Then, on another domain, I set those nameservers to my new nameservers. The changes have taken effect as I can do a whois on the domain and see the new nameservers listed through network solutions. However, if I go to that domain, I don't get my site... instead, I get the page not found error. Could it be that registering the nameservers hasn't been done yet? I did it about 48 hours ago. Any advice would be extremely helpful. Thanks!
This is a CPanel bug, that's easily fixed. Login to your box from SSH, and type "pico /etc/nameserverips" (without the quotes). Change the nameservers that are in there for each IP address to your own, for instance,
change "111.222.333.44=ns1.theirserver.com" to "111.222.333.44=ns1.yourdomain.com". Save and close out of the file, and you'll be up and running with your own nameserver IPs.
