    hi
    i am a newbie cpanel user , in the docs it says
    .
    My Cpanel was installed first with "domain.com" . After this i have created a account with the domain . IS THIS wrong , does this mean i cant have that domain to be used as a normal website ?

    you should use the "change hostname" function of WHM and change the hostname.

    a hostname has to be a fqdn, wich means among others that is has to contain 2 dots.

    so set it to something like server.domain.com
    And then add an "A" entry for this hostname(you can do that in WHM also)

    so u mean if i have server.myname.com as the cpanel hostname
    and
    in a regular account i set up the normal domain ' myname.com ' , then i will have no issues or problems , right ?

    p.s thanks for answering on both my first day questions :)

    yes, that is correct.

    you can have domain.com on a server who's hostname is server.domain.com
