Hi everyone at HostingDiscussion,

I hope your day is going good. I've been trying to fix a problem I had all week. I keep receiving the following message from Cpanel. I've tried a few solutions from the web, but to no avail:

====================================
IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
The hostname (example.mydomainname.com) resolves to . It should resolve to 208.53.183.125. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.
Some are all of these problems can be caused by
/etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check this file if you
believe everything else is correct.

You may be able to automaticly correct this problem by using the
'Add an A entry for your hostname' under 'Dns Functions'
in your Web Host Manager
====================================

1) Within WHM, I have the following:

-Add an A entry for your hostname (I only have one listed)
Hostname: example.mydomainname.com
Server Main Ip: 208.53.183.125

-Primary/secondary nameserver
Primary Nameserver: ns1.mydomainname.com (A entry = 208.53.181.26)
Secondary Nameserver: ns2.mydomainname.com (A entry = 208.53.181.27)

-Resolver Configuration
Primary Resolver: 66.90.68.25
Secondary Resolver: 66.90.68.26

-Additional IP my webhost gave me to use:
208.53.181.26 (used in primary name server)
208.53.181.27 (used in secondary name server)
208.53.181.28

-Current DNS Zone listing:
example.com (website URL that is working)
example.mydomainname.com (hostname I made myself that contains the server main IP)
ns1.mydomainname.com (A entry = 208.53.181.26)
ns2.mydomainname.com (A entry = 208.53.181.27)


2) My edit "edit /etc/resolv.conf" contains the following:

Search localdomain
nameserver 66.90.68.25
nameserver 66.90.68.26


Issue: I received email notification that "example.mydomainname.com" does not resolve to any IP. However, when in WHM, it already contains Server Main Ip: 208.53.183.125. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?


Thanks a million in advance,

-Silvers


PS: I am not able to register my two nameserver at GoDaddy.com since it does not recognize my host name "example.mydomainname.com".

You need to create A records for the following on the DNS servers.

ns1.yourdomain.com IN A 208.53.181.26
ns2.yourdomain.com IN A 208.53.181.27

Moreover, also create the child nameservers at godaddy for the above nameservers mentinoed.
