    hostname question

    Hi I just got a new VPS account with KnownHost and I have a question about hostname. The account is for ready dot ca

    I created the nameserver at the Regitrar by changing the DNS setting to my new ns1.ready dot ca ns1.ready dot ca including the 2 IPs I got with my account. Did I do the right thing?

    Now when I look on my WHM under Hostname. I see that my hostname is ns1.ready dot ca and on that page it says:

    "It is important to choose a hostname that you will not be using for any account."

    Does it mean that I should use for example vps.ready dot as hostname. And if so, should I use that vps.ready dot ca at the registrar?

    Thank you.

    the records at the registrar should be like this:

    ns1.domain.com
    ns2.domain.com

    To ensure that both nameservers glue correctly, you should use 1nr IP address for each nameserver record.

    The hostname of the server/vps should be something like vps1.domain.com.

    The important part is to ensure that the hostname of your server VPS has an A record for your nameservers (IE. ns1.domain.com & ns2.domain.com).

    This then enables your domain to resolve at your server.

    Hope this (very basic tutorial) helps... !

    You can SSH into your VPS and run:

    /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

    That will resolve the issue.
