    Hello all,

    I have a server with softlayer, and from the administrative panel of the company, the offer to change the hostname of the server, but when I go to cpanel to see the ip address usage, I can see that the old hostname are still using the main ip and not the new.

    Can somebody help me with this?

    Thank you

    Hello daferub,

    Do you have WHM or cPanel only access on the machine?

    If you have WHM access, please try going to WHM > Change Hostname area to change the hostname again there. Please also then check WHM > Basic cPanel & WHM Setup area that the hostname is listed properly.

    Next, when you mention "still using the main ip and not the new", do you mean the new hostname or a new IP?
