    I'm really confused to please stay with me :)

    I have a domain, currently pointing to a shared hosting account (that uses cpanel) that I pay for from hostgator.com
    They handle all the dns stuff, and my registar allows me to change the nameservers.

    I want to host my website, and other peoples websites on my home server. I just installed cpanel yesterday on suse 10.1

    I configured cpanel just logging in as localhost, since no top level domain points to my server.

    How can I have my own website point to my server ( can my own cpanel host my own domain ) or do I need to use someone else's dns like zoneedit.com to point to my ip?

    Hopefully adding clients will be easier once I have this all set up.

    /\ Probably not explained well but please see if you can help.

    Thanks

    1) Add your domain as a main cpanel domain name.
    2) Declare nameservers properly in your DNS zone in cpanel.
    3) Register those nameservers with proper IP's at your domain name registrar.
    4) Point your other domain name to the registered nameservers of your main domain name.

    thanks, im reinstalling linux. A lot wouldn't work, but it wasn't nearly a fresh linux install, so mabey that'll fix most of the problems so I can do what you said.

    Thanks a lot.
