    I get this error when I login to WHM:

    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,


    None of my domains are working, and I can't seem to fix this. I do the "Click Here" link and go through the steps and come up with yet another error:

    IP= Bind reloading on best using rndc zone: [] Error reloading bind on best: rndc: connection to remote host closed This may indicate that the remote server is using an older version of the command protocol, this host is not authorized to connect, or the key is invalid. Add Complete


    Now a buddy of mine suggested I change everything back to the default, nameservers included. Is this a good/bad idea? Is there anything else I can do?

    Try these steps...

    If you get a message saying something similar to

    rndc: connection refused

    Login as root and run "/scripts/fixndc"

    If you see something similar to

    "Bind reloading on server using rndc zone: [] Error reloading
    bind on server: rndc: 'reload' failed: not found
    Created DNS entry for"

    Run "/scripts/upcp" to update to the latest version of C-Panel
