    I'm trying to setup my server, but I'm not sure if I'm doing everything correctly.

    My hostname is and I setup my nameservers to be and I registered my nameservers with my registrar. I then switched over one of my domain names to the new nameservers. I setup the cPanel for this domain name and a simple index page.

    I can ping the nameservers, so I know they are working. When I ping the domain name it can not find the server. It's been 4 days now, am I forgetting something? Does the hostname need to be the same as the namerservers?
