     Your hostname ( could not be resolved
    to an IP address. This means that /etc/hosts is not set up
    correctly, and/or there is no dns entry for Please be sure that the contents of
    /etc/hosts are configured correctly, and also that there is a
    correct 'A' entry for the domain in the zone file.
    Some or all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf
    being setup incorrectly. Please check that file if you believe
    everything else is correct.
    You may be able to automatically correct this problem by using the
    'Add an A entry for your hostname' option under 'Dns Functions' in
    your Web Host Manager.
    i got this error from last 15 days i added dns entry and also done everything that is mention in this mail but it still getting an error.

    How can i fix it .? :(

    Thanks in advance..

    Thats not a valid hostname, change it to something like and make sure it resolves to a IP, you can quickly test this by doing a "ping".

    Be aware that in order to solve this, the nameservers IP for needs to be pointing to your WHM server.
