    Hi there!

    I recently bought cPanel and have set it all up now. Running smoothly etc.

    Tryed to move my first domain into cPanel today..

    When I first added it it sayd it was added to another NS, which is thru. I'm having it added to my old NS's.

    My "fix" was to "Add a DNS Zone".

    But now I can't add an account etc, as the domain is already registered..

    What's the real deal for me? I need to have everything up and running before I move the NS pointer.. Guess I'm just missing something..

    New domains is working great, but what about my old? :)

    I have around 30 domain to move, and wanna make it smooth.

    Thanks in advance,

    In "Tweak Settings", clear the check mark for "When adding a new domain, if the domain is already registered, ignore the configured nameservers, and set the NS line to the authoritative (registered) ones."

    remove the zone file you have configured and add the user/domain normally.

    When you're ready to move the sites, modify the domain record at the registrar to use your new name servers
