    Hi,

    I currently have my server with a hostname vps.domain.com, how can i change the hostname to for example vps.newdomain.com?

    When i have tried to do this i am able to change the hostname and reach the login page for WHM/Cpanel at vps.newdomain.com but it says my credentials are invalid even though they are correct.

    Thanks

    Jamie

    Is there an A record for vps.newdomain.com pointing to your server's IP?
