Ok, I have a few questions about WHM and my VPS that maybe someone could assist me with. (I've read all of the DNS messages on this forum btw) First, in DNS Zones. Say my host name is host.mydomain.com do I need a DNS Zone for both host.mydomain.com and for mydomain.com? (or is this just going to confuse the server?) Doesn't feel right. When I choose "Add an A entry for your hostname" It shows the host.mydomain.com short hostname to host, domain to mydomain.com and IP. I've done this a few times. I'm almost certain that the A record is correct in the mydomain.com zone. When I run the add entry, it says: "Bind reload skipped on host (nameserver disabled)" Is that normal? If I edit the zone file for mydomain.com, It shows: (noting A records only) mydomain.com 14400 in A my IP localhost.mydomain.com 14400 in A 127.0.0.1 (local IP) host.mydomain.com 14400 in A - my IP (this seems to be the one added when choosing Add an A record for your Hostname and finally I added host 14400 in A my IP (which prob doesn't do anything but can it hurt?) (interesting how the entries for the domain itself all have (.) periods after the name - along with the nameservers ) mydomain.com. 86400 in NS ns1.mydomain.com. Ok back to the Nameserver disabled error. I've gone back and forth with the 'Enable Nameserver' setup under Server configuration. I've enabled it and disabled it. What's the deal here. Do I need it enabled for things the function properly? (in service manager should named, Berkely Name Server Daemon be check enabled) I get the feeling that I don't need to enable this for the VPS to function properly. So, any feedback on this stuff?
