    hi im running FreeBSD 8.1 and cpanel 11

    i keep getting the mail that contains the fallowing
    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    Your hostname ( could not be resolved to
    an IP address. This means that /etc/hosts is not set up correctly,
    and/or there is no dns entry for Please
    be sure that the contents of /etc/hosts are configured correctly,
    and also that there is a correct 'A' entry for the domain in the
    zone file.
    Some or all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf
    being setup incorrectly. Please check that file if you believe
    everything else is correct.
    You may be able to automatically correct this problem by using the
    'Add an A entry for your hostname' option under 'Dns Functions' in
    your Web Host Manager.
    here is my /etc/hosts

    ::1             localhost               localhost
    external-ip1-hidden   server1 fdcser$
    here is my /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver external-ip1-hidden
    nameserver external-ip2-hidden
    I cannot for the life of me figure out what the deal is its been over 24 hrs and no propagation as well and i noticed via port scan that nothing is listening on port 53

    FYI I rent my server through FDC
