    There are too many links and too much literature on the problem affecting Cpanel and RPM Based distros.

    The problem is simple, and complex. Each restart a VPS with OpenVZ technology (Proxmox, Virtuozzo, etc) the hostname of the VPS is reduced to what it is, hostname, and hostname not FQDN.

    This planet problem with the license, correctly configured mail servers, etc.

    That trick used to avoid the problem?

    Hostname of a VPS has to be set from the host server and not within the VPS. If the hostname is set from within the VPS, it will reset back to what it was after a VPS reboot.

    If you have access to the host server on which the VPS is residing, you can set the hostname using the vzctl command

    replace, with the hostname you wish to have.

    If you don't have access to the host server, contact your hosting provider.
