    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

    You can use any name you want, such as server1.yourdomain.com

    Usually you want to make it anonymous so your reseller's customers don't see your name.

    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.
