    Hello.
    I am new WHM user and I have two questions about changing hostname

    According to the CPanel documentation:
    1. You must use a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) that contains two periods (for example, hostname.example.com).
    2. Do not choose a hostname that a cPanel account on your server will use.
    My questions are:

    1.
    So, I own a domain: mydomain.com.gr
    If I use this domain for hostname for example: host1.mydomain.com.gr I will have 3 periods in the hostname instead of two. Will it be valid???
    2. In the same server can I use the domain mydomain.com.gr as an account (It is a VPS server CentOS 7)???

    Thanks in advance
