Hi,
The host name of my server is set to
panel.mydomain.co.uk and both WHM and CPanel are accessible via this subdomain.

How would I go about creating a website and email (cPanel account) for the domain mydomain.co.uk as currently when I try to add an account with this domain it tells me dns records already exist and that I can't?

What is the best way to get a website and email system setup at my domain?

Thank you for your help, I look forward to hearing from you.

You would want to go into WHM > Delete a DNS Zone

Delete the hostname

Then add the cPanel account.

Once done, go to WHM > Edit a DNS Zone

and make sure to add back the hostname as an additional A Record

Hello,

Browse to "WHM >> DNS Functions >> Delete A DNS Zone" and see if you can find your domain name in the list of existing DNS zones. If so, you'd want to delete the zone, create the account, and then add back the "A" records for your hostname and name servers.

Thank you.
