I have recently signed up with a vps to move 2 or three sites from elsewhere to it. Using 2 nameservers for the current server and have registered 2 more for the new IP addresses via the registrar 4 days ago, but the websites on vps does not work, though it works by http://IPaddress/~username/
I receive an alert from the cpanel that The hostname (server.mydomain.com) resolves to .
(In fact nothing) instead of my IP address.
My company support say that the nameservers is not set, but when I go to "Manage Nameserver IPs" under "Server Setup" in my WHM it confirms that the IP is registered with an ICANN register.
Do I have to wait still, or some adjustment is needed in server side?
1. run /scripts/fixndc
2. check /etc/hosts and ensure that server.yourdomain.com is in fact in there and isn't resolving to something like HOSTVDS but in fact your hostname/IP
3. Are the domains that you have added listed in /var/named/ ?
And just a note - they may be correct.
Doublecheck some of the domains you've setup on the vps using dnsreport.com - which errors show up?
(Not all of the above directions are for just this issue - they fix other issues..as well. You'll want to have your host/Dc setup reverse DNS on your IP as well to your hostname preferably to stop some mailing errors with AOL and other providers).
