    Hi.

    In accessing WHM as root through typing the URL into the browser, the browser gives an SSL warning that the site is not certified. In order to deal with this, I purchased a domain name for the server and requested an SSL for that domain. I did not have to create an account for this domain name, as it was for the WHM interface, i.e. the server as a whole - not the domains of the accounts on it.
    After buying the SSL, I was told that I would need to update the DNS for the domain to point to my server. How does one do this from WHM? - I messed around with changing the nameserver names and adding A-entries, then also edited the DNS zones, but the fact is that I don't really know what to do and may even have messed things up.:eek:
    Also, I would like to be able to test and see whether the changes I have made are correctly applied, but am aware that the do[main name typically takes a while to propagate to the DNS. How can I check that I have done the right thing as soon as I make the changes?
    Any help here would be appreciated, including redirection to some clear documentation / past solutions.

    You do this at your Domain name Registrar.
    The docs should be helpful here:

    How to Register Private Nameservers - cPanel Documentation

    A site like this can be helpful for that:

    Thanks, InfoPro: I thought that there was something I needed to do from WHM, but it makes sense that this is done through the registrar.
