    Recently got a VDS and it's my first try at the backend side with WHM.

    I have 2 problems.

    1. How can I ssh to my WHM? I see where I can have shell access via cPanel, but I don't see that option in WHM. Never accessed ssh before so I'm clueless.

    2. The reason I need shell access is to correct the problems I'm having with the personal nameservers to point to my domain. It shows I have 5 dns zones even though there isn't any added! There is some conflict but I need to view the config files.

    Does anyone have a screen shot/Flash walk-thru on how to configure nameservers for us newbies (especially what to enter in the Edit DNS Zone)? For whatever reason I can't get the nameservers to resolve the domain name to my site...yes, they are configured at the register already.

    Please help!

    I do not suggest you to access to SSH if you do not know what you're doing. Anything silly and you might broke the OS.

    Just in case that you'd still want and experience of that, I suggest you read this thread here

    Good luck.
