    I keep getting this email:
    [host.exservers.com] IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
    The hostname (host.exservers.com) resolves to . It should resolve to 65.75.154.220. 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
    .
    When I ping host.exservers.com it resolves to the correct ip address. I tried adding an A entry under WHM's DNS functions but to no avail.

    What should I do?

    If you have root access to WHM then edit the /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/hosts by hand.

    Seems to be resolving okay here. Are you continually getting that message or was it a one time deal?

    Something is not quite right with your DNS setup, but without looking at it, it is hard to say waht it is. You can feel free to contact me if you'd like me to take a look at it.
