    I just had an install of cPanel & WHM put under VMware on my new server and I just can't seem to get it running.
    The main issue seems to be the nameserver will not resolve to the website. I have run intodns on the server and the name server is not responding. The nameservers are listed however, so I am told it is something to do with the WHM or cPanel setup but I am such a nube I can't find it.

    Server is new and only one site on it so far. Anyone wants access it is ok with me, I would just like it to work.

    server is:

    with and

    ns1 is (or should be) tied to and
    ns2 is tied to

    cPanel and WHM are at

    You must edit the DNS Zone of the domain and add A records for the hostname and the name servers:

    server 14400 IN A
    ns1 14400 IN A
    ns2 14400 IN A

    Then, if you haven't done it already, you go to GoDaddy and register those name servers with the correct IPs.
