    I'm trying to add a DNS entry for my server so it can work with my domain name.
    My domain name is not resident on my server, I registered a domain name with a registrant company, I have used their tool so mydomain name points to my IP and it worked with windows 2003 server before I instaled the WHM , I had an independent DNS server, but now either I don't know how to set up the DNS with the WHM dns feature or I need to configure something else in the WEB HOST MANAGER?

    When I try the " Add an A Entry for your Hostname " under the DNS function tab it says

    Found your hostname to be:
    Found your short hostname to be: CretuDaniel
    Found your domain name to be:
    Found your main ip to be:
    If this looks correct, Add the entry

    And then I get an error
    The error says: The zone for the root domain is missing, or could not be read.

    So in this case what do I do.
    I want my domain name which I registered with the registrant company to work with my server.
    I would apreciate it if any one can help

    If you want to create the DNS entry for the domain, you can create it from WHM >> DNS Functions >> Add a dns zone

    Type the Server Ip and the domain Name
