    I have a server at with cpanel installed.
    I had to configure WHM/Cpanel myself. The instructions provided by said to leave the DNS as default, which is ns1.vm. I am now trying to point a domain to my server but needed to configure the nameservers.
    On WHM, Under edit DNS Zone I have the following:
    domain: 86400 IN NS 86400 IN NS 86400 IN A [IP Provided by] 86400 IN MX 0
    and some more lines for mail, ftp etc
    then at the bottom
    ns1 14400 IN A [IP Provided by]
    ns2 14400 IN A [IP Provided by]

    On my Domain registrar, I have pointed all records to the IP, and have set the name servers to and But the registrar keeps coming back with error a glue record is required. Am I missing something, what have I done wrong?

    Also when I go to Nameserver record reports it still says ns1.vm, what is .vm. I thought Virtual Machine, but why hasn't it updated?

    Thanks for any help
