    Add an A entry to your hostname

    I am receiving this message all the time when logging into whm.
    I have an A entry and all domains are working fine, I just receive this message and an ipcheck error email every day.

    I made a trouble ticket to cPanel because my service provider couldn't help. I just don't quite understand this answer:

    works externally:
    [[email protected] concept2reality]$ host xxxxx.xxxx.xx
    xxxxx.xxxx.xx has address
    [[email protected] concept2reality]$

    not internally:
    [email protected] [~]# host xxxxx.xxxx.xx
    Host xxxxx.xxxx.xx not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
    [email protected] [~]#

    Make one of the name server entries and it will work.

    What exactly do I have to do and where?

    Is xxxxx.xxxx.xx is your hostname? Is xxxx.xx a valid/resolving domain? Hostname should be a valid/resolving domain to your server, if not select another hostname....

    and If xxxx.xx is already hosted on that server and resolving properly, in WHM, go to DNS -> Edit DNS Zone and edit xxxx.xx. Then add an A Entry for "host2" with your IP and save it.

    Restart Bind to be sure.
