    hello.

    when i try to add a domain name that starts with a number i get a message that says

    "sorry, your domain name must not begin with a digit"

    i've been able to add number domains before, can anybody tell me how i might be able to fix this?

    thank you.

    That's odd, since domain names can validly start with a digit.

    Have you tried contacting cPanel support?

    Are you sure it doesnt mean that Usernames cannot start with a number? I find typos quite often in cpanel messages.

    no, it's definitely saying the domain name..

    it IS strange because i didn't have this problem before.. :confused: if i'm hosted, does that mean i have to have the company i'm hosted through contact them since i don't have a license?

    Try removing the number from the automaticaly generated username so it starts with a letter that should then allow you to create the domain.
