    I am new to CPanel and today have configured everything and it works.
    I got this e mail and do now know what do I have to do.
    If you can help me with this.


    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.

    Your hostname (vmi11837 ) could not be resolved to an IP address.
    This means that /etc/hosts is not set up correctly, and/or there is
    no dns entry for vmi11837. Please be sure that the contents of
    /etc/hosts are configured correctly, and also that there is a
    correct 'A' entry for the domain in the zone file.

    Some or all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf
    being setup incorrectly. Please check that file if you believe
    everything else is correct.

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

    My hosts file:

    root@vmi11837 [/home]# cat /etc/hosts localhost.localdomain localhost
    ::1 localhost localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
    - removed -
