    hey

    bit a weird one.
    try create it as ".com" in cpanel and see if that works ??

    Just create a domain in cpanel (any name) - so it creates al lthe files and entries etc

    Then on the command line edit httpd.conf and named.conf and the zones and change them to what you need.

    Not a very nice way of doing it but it will work ... i think :eek:

    cheers

    Not a good idea as these are not only files where panel make entries but there are plenty of others..
    Do this and it will work..

    Add domain name as www.www.com, cpanel will remove first www and not the second one.. so that will fix it.
