    Hello,

    I keep getting this email and (I am not a reseller or a host company) when I add a new account and change DNS records and check internic propagation, I realized that my domains don't resolve properly (except main domain). I added an A entry in my WHM but didn't work.
    Code:
    IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (mydomain.ev1servers.net) resolves to .  It should 
    resolve to XXX.XX.XXX.XX.  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
    I am very new to DNS and I don't want to mess it up through conf files

    Thanks in advance
    Ingres

    hi,

    Double check you /etc/resolv.conf and also /etc/hosts file anddns zone file for your domain. This message warn you that your hostname do not resolve correctly.

    Go on, have a guess
    Actually the issue is here:

    mydomain.ev1servers.net

    You need to setup a proper hostname for the server (which you can do in WHM) which is a subdomain of your own FQDN, e.g. server.mydomain.com and add an DNS A record entry into the authoratitive zone for mydomain.com for "server" pointing to the main IP address of the server.
