I have a reseller on my network. Anyhow, I want to make it so it is virtually untracable back to me.

Now I think I have half done this.. here is an example..

http://network-tools.com/default.asp?prog=dnsrec&Netnic=whois.arin.net&host=exlhosting.com

That is what you get when you look up the DNS records.. now here is the problem..

http://network-tools.com/default.asp?prog=express&Netnic=whois.arin.net&host=exlhosting.com

See how it says:
Alias:
server.brightlightwebsites.com

That is the problem.. anyone out there know how I can stop that without crashing the server?

Is that your

server name?

If so you will need to change the server name and then have Scott change your DNS reverse.

It's not reverse DNS

This IP address has no reverse DNS entry. Results of an nslookup on the IP shows, &** server can't find 11.225.180.216.in-addr.arpa.: NXDOMAIN& -- ie, there is no reverse entry.

The reason you're showing the other server name is because you have multiple registered DNS servers pointing to one IP address - something which technically breaks RFC but is now being allowed by several registrars. Do a whois lookup on the IP address (from a shell) and you'll see the various registered names. You're seeing the first one because the others are all basically considered aliases to the first (see below).

How to fix this? Add more IP addresses on the server (if you don't have 'em already), and assign each reseller's name server to a unique IP address. In my case, I have a seperate server which serves as a master CPanel DNS server and each reseller has one unique IP address on that box to register with their NIC as an authoritative DNS server. And then they also get one IP on the box hosting their reseller accounts. This way they have two of their own unique IPs, on two seperate servers, and on two seperate networks... with no duplication with other resellers or with us.
