Hello everyone at Webhostingtalk!

Hope your weekend is going good. I hope you can help me with my issue. I am trying to set up the WebHostManager for CPanel(CentOS)and there is a section where it ask for "This Server's Host name"


Using SSH (PuTTy), I've logged in and type the following recommended by FDCserver.net:

edit /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 66.90.68.25
nameserver 66.90.68.26


I am in need of your guidance. What should I do from here in order to create my "Server's Host name"?


Thanks in advance.


-Silvers

(PS- I've registered for my domain name at godaddy.com last week)

Well, this isn't Webhostingtalk, but you set your own name servers.
For instance if you are using "www.example.com" you could set your host server to "host.example.com"

Thanks for your response and I apologize. I meant to edit, but unable to edit shortly after I posted. I hope you can help me with one more issue.

Issue: I am having an issue displaying my uploaded files in CPanel to appear at my park domain. I selected "Create a New Account" from WebHostmanager, log into the new Cpanel account and started uploading some files.

The uploaded files displays successfully at "http://208.53.18x.xxx/testdmin/postinfo.html", but if I go to my park domain "http://examplemanga.com/postinfo.html" (example domain), the upload files does not display. The following are some information/steps I did:

1) From Godaddy.com, my domain name server is listed as:

Nameserver 1:NS44.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
Nameserver 2:NS45.DOMAINCONTROL.COM

2) This is the information from my web host manager:

-Server IP : 208.53.18x.xxx
-Hostname: examplemanga.DOMAINCONROL.com
-Primary Nameserver:NS44.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
-Secondary Nameserver:NS45.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
-In SSH, edit /etc/resolv.conf look like this:

Search localdomain
-nameserver 66.90.68.25
-nameserver 66.90.68.26

3) From the WebHostManager CPanel, I clicked on "Create a New Account/List Account".

-Domain: examplemanga.com (park domain from godaddy.com)
-IP: 208.53.18x.xxx
-The "A entry for your hostname": examplemanga.DOMAINCONROL.com // 208.53.18x.xxx


Question: I am able to upload the files, but why is it not showing on my park domain "http://examplemanga.com/postinfo.html"? Do you know what I am doing wrong?


Thanks a million in advance,
-Silvers

Looks to me like you need to forward your domain name to your server.

Log in to your Godaddy account and change the name servers from the Godaddy default to your own name servers.

If this is a reseller or VPS type account, which I suspect it is, you will need to create the name servers first at the registrar level.

Sorry for the late response.

Thanks for your help with this. I was able to get my site up and running last week.
