    Today I was not able to access any site on my server via http.
    And also I was not able to ping main shared virtual host ip.

    But I could access WHM with the help of additional ip, restart BIND and
    everything seems to be ok now.

    How I can understand what had happend?

    Thank You.

    Assuming you have root access, try the following to look for errors:
    rndc status - to see Bind/Named status
    httpd configtest - to check for httpd.conf syntax errors
    service named restart - check for startup errors
