    Hi,

    I have a little problem.

    I would like to change the current domain of the nameservers but when I come to assign the new nameserver addresses to the IPs, I try and remove the current ones. When I do try to remove the current nameservers (in Networking Setup>>Nameserver IPs), it says "Sorry, the nameserver ip 12.34.56.78 cannot be removing since it is still registered with an ICANN register."

    How would I fix this?

    Thanks!

    It's reminding you that you still have that IP listed with the nameserver you registered at whatever registrar you use. If you are sure you know what you are doing you can change it manually in etc/nameserverips. Be careful or you might end up with unreachable domains :eek:

    There was a spelling mistake. It is nameserverips

    Try using a locate comand. In the cpanel setup it should be there.

    /etc/nameserverips
