    Hello guys.

    I am new to the forum and I could use some help with a problem I have.

    I have a domain (example.com) that is handled by company A.
    I also have a web server with cPanel that I have full access at a company B.

    I have created a subdomain (falieris.example.com) in order to separate things from the main server and I would now like to connect the domain to point to the public_html of the newly set subdomain.

    At the domain, I have set 2 A entries for DNS, 1 for "@" to point to the IP address of my server (192.196.xxx.xxx) and 1 for "www" to also point there.
    At the web server, I have left the default settings of the subdomain.

    Unfortunately, when I access "example.com" I get an error and I am redirected to "example.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi".

    What am I doing wrong?
    Is there something else I should change, update or check?

    Thank you for your help.

    As a extra tidbit to the “How to Set Up Nameservers in a cPanel Environment”

    Some registrars are a pita, so you might also need you to add the IP addresses for the server name itself or find the ‘Nameserver’ settings lumped into a generic ‘Host names’ section.

    Mine is setup as:

    » Manage DNS » Host names

    with the entries:

    {IP Address} NS1
    {IP Address} NS2
    {IP Address} SRV01


    ymmv,
    Michael
