    Hello

    I want to ask if i buy a dedicated server for shared hosting what hostname do i use?

    It must be a valid domain as i don't want to host my homepage there?

    When i am going to order the cpanel license i must add that info there also.

    Thanks

    But it seems that cpanel use this domain and adds some info in tha server....

    I was add a name server like this:

    server.myname.com

    and to that server

    server2.myname.com

    And it seems not to work...

    Make sure you have created A record entry for server record in your server. A record should point to the IP address of your dedicated server.
