    Forgive this basic question but how do I go about identifying my DNS server as the authoritive name server for my domain via WHM.

    Do I have to add/modify a zone or is it just enough to list my ns server and the secondary ns on my DNS server running WHM?

    Don't forget to set up your nameservers with your domain registrar as well.

    It looks to me like they are registered correctly when I enter the domain into intoDNS: checks DNS and mail servers health I don't get alot of errors just a warning that my SOA EXPIRE value isn't OK but its the default used by WHM

    but subdomains aren't getting returned even though they are listed in my DNS zone

    Having DNS issues

    My DNS is still pointing to the old VPS IP's for nameservers despite that I used WHM express transfer. When checking the intoDNS: waddingtonjewelers.com - check DNS server and mail server health

    it's still pointing to the old VPS (through hostv.com) and not the new VPS (from liquidweb.com)

    The registrar (godaddy.com) doesn't host my DNS, they are just registered to ns1.kiwicommunications.com if you do a WHOIS. :confused:

    Please help! Thanks!
