    Am I being decieved?

    A month ago I purchased a dedicated server. Today I set up an account on my box via a reseller account I created for myself and recieved this in the email.


    New Account Info |
    +===================================+
    | Domain: clanmex.net
    | Ip: 66.7.193.66 (n)
    | HasCgi: y
    | UserName: XXXXX
    | PassWord: XXXXX
    | CpanelMod: x
    | HomeRoot: /home
    | Quota: 2048 Meg
    | NameServer: ns2.opgwebhosting.com
    | Contact Email: XXXXXXX

    The problem is the nameserver listed above is not mine!

    Here is what I recieved on the 18th of this month when I created a account .

    This is the correct nameserver.

    My question is how if I have the whole box(dedicated) how does it even spit out that nameserver. I logged into root and cant find any listing for that nameserver and the IP's for the incorrect nameservers resolve to totally seperate block.

    Did they try and scam me with a VPS?

    I am leaving the company name out until I get a response for the ticket I just submitted but most of you can figure out who it is by the IP's .

    Both of those domains were created on the same date, 10th of january this year, i'm not sure what that means, but there is a test to find out if you are on a VPS.

    But really I don't know what this could be.

    SandM,

    That just means it's configured improperly within your WHM system.
    It in no way means you're not on a dedicated.

    You're logging in as root. There's a few methods of checking whether or not you're on a VPS by checking kernel versions.

    There's a surefire method -- but I can't recall the exact file to check within /proc/ and don't have a vps/node to test it on right now.

    Ok, I got response and we did some testing.

    Upon account creation the account window verifies all the info is correct but when I recieve the email with said info it lists the wrong NS.


    Ex. WHM set up comfirmation window

    Now I am really confused. No changes were made at all to anything on the box.

    Funny thing is it is now a different nameserver.

    Check the reverse DNS on the IP;s as I bet there is a rouge entry as the email does seem to generate the name server by looking pu the IP

    I am resting a little easier after doing more testing. Also Hostdime the provider of the box is responding in timely fashion to the tickets sofar.

    I will let them do what I pay them for and resolve it.

    I appreciate all your inputs and I will follow up and let you know the outcome.

    Update!

    The new client asked me to login to his domain CP and edit the nameservers to mine.

    I saw this.
    ns1.opgwebhosting.com
    ns2.opgwebhosting.com

    The nameservers listed on my email. When I creted the account did the email I was sent do a reverse lookup and tell me what his nameservers are now not what I created them under on my machine? I have never seen that before.
