    Hi,

    I tried to setup (for example) myserver.com as a new account, but cPanel don't allow me to use the server's hostname as a domain. How to proceed? Or is there already a directory that I could use? I tried to put an index.html to /root/public_html, but it didn't show up in the browser when I navigated to myserver.com. What is this directory used for? Thanks! :)
