    Hi there, when it comes to DNS change, ect I am not that good.

    Okay, basically, a reseller wants to change the hostname in their WHM from my hostname to something else, as they are adding accounts, and they don't want people to see my domain.

    Is there anyway around this?

    Cheers.

    Hello,

    They can always create custom name servers to hide this. For setting custom name servers, go to Reseller Center >> Select Reseller >> Edit reseller privileges and name servers.

    Why specifically are they wanting to change the hostname? If this has to do with exim, then the mailhelo can be changed for their IP if they have a dedicated IP by selecting WHM > Exim Configuration Editor for these options:

    After selecting these, then the dedicated IP entries can be manually added to each file:

    /etc/mailips

    Format:
    resellerdomain.com: 192.0.0.0

    /etc/mailhelo

    Format:
    resellerdomain.com: resellerdomain.com

    /etc/mail_reverse_dns

    Format:
    192.0.0.0: resellerdomain.com

    Above, replace resellerdomain.com with the name of the reseller's domain, then replace 192.0.0.0 with the dedicated IP for that reseller.

    Of note, the PTR record in the IP zone will still be whatever the IP provider set for that IP. Whoever controls the IP DNS zone will need to change the PTR record for the IP to match the /etc/mail_reverse_dns file.
