I need some help resolving a problem and configuring my domain. As a note: assume that I'm completely new at everything. I may sound like I know something, but I probably don't. So my First problem: I'm getting an email almost daily titled: [ipcheck] problems with DNS setup on host.mydomain.com Email states : IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email. The hostname (host.mydomain.com) resolves to . It should resolve to ##.###.10.151. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain. I hope you don't mind I'm generalizing the actual domain and ip address. Anyway I don't know what this email is telling me to do. I think I have to edit something, somewhere but I don't know where etc/hosts and the 'A' entry are. Are these changes done on WHM and Cpanel or are they something I have to alter with my domain name registar? Second Problem: I'm not sure I configured my domain correctly at the start. These were the instructions sent in the initial email when my VPS was first created: You need to create the following name servers at your registrar: ns1.mydomain.com using IP ##.###.10.151 ns2.mydomain.com using IP ##.###.11.151 To access cPanel WHM go to: http://##.###.10.151:#### Your first steps should be: 1) Create the two name servers at your registrar 2) Point your domain at them I"m a little confused with these steps. My domain is managed through enom. In the domain settings, I set it to custom DNS and added the 2 name servers: ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com. (by the way, it appears that when you use custom DNS, you can no longer configurate host records. Isn't the "A" entry mentioned above a host record?) Well I got stuck on the 2nd step. "1) Create the two name servers at your registrar" I just did this, right? "2) Point your domain at them" How do I do this? I didn't finish the setup and left it at that. So here were my next steps. I went into WHM, created a package, and account and with the domain mydomain.com and ip: ##.###.10.151. So now I'm getting that email notification almost every day. What should I do?
