    Hello, in my WHM it displays the popup message below, and I would like to know exactly how I go about doing this please. I am new so if you could tell me exactly how to do this that would be great. Thanks

    The server was unable to lookup an an A entry for its hostname (mysite.servermatrix.com). This is generally because the entry was never added. However this could also be the result of your nameserver(s) being down.

    The short explanation is under WHM>>DNS Functions>>Add an A entry for your host name.
