I setup my hostname as juno.novo-now.com. Do I need to have novo-now.com setup as an account(website) also?

Hello :)

It's not required to create an account that matches the primary domain name of your hostname. However, you should ensure the "A" record for the hostname itself resolves to the server's primary IP address.

Thank you.

thanks

the hostname juno.novo-now.com is using my primary IP

if i wanted to create a website for novo-now.com and use it for mail should i assign it's own dedicated IP or should it be using the server's primary IP also?

It's fine to have it use the main shared IP address of the server, or a dedicated IP address. Either will be suitable.

Thank you.
