    This is the exact error message:

    "The server was unable to lookup an an A entry for its hostname ( This is generally because the entry was never added. However this could also be the result of your nameserver(s) being down. If you would like to attempt to automaticlly add the entry, ".

    When I try and add the "A entry" this is what it looks like.

    "Found your hostname to be:
    Found your short hostname to be: tj001
    Found your domain name to be:
    Found your main ip to be:
    If this looks correct, "

    This is what it says after try to add.

    "IP= Bind reloading on tj001 using rndc zone: [] Add Complete"

    But the error still comes up every time I log into the webhost manager.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    You can edit the DNS zone manually. Login to WHM >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone
    Check on the syntax of the DNS zone and make sure every thing is correct. When done, scroll down and click "Save".
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
