    becouse it want me to use whatever.sysrandata.se

    so i by coomandline

    hostname randata.se
    /usr/local/cpanel/cpkeyclt

    but after some hours i get a mail with

    "IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (server.sysrandata.se) resolves to . It should resolve to 195.238.77.91. Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.

    Some are all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly. Please check this file if you believe everything else is correct.


    You may be able to
    automaticly correct this problem by using the ' Add an A entry for your
    hostname ' under ' Dns Functions ' in your Web Host Manager


    "


    andthen when i check hostname its back to the old one

    Your hostname can not be a domain name. You must name your server something.domain.com or nothing will work.
