    Trophy Points:
    Hi, I have recently had my dedicated server installed and i'm up to the point i need to setup in WHM.

    There are 2 points i struggled with. I HAVE contacted support, but the tech-guy i got didn't sound like he knew what he was doing much he kept having to 'go and check' and he gave me information i knew was incorrect.. maybe he just didn't understand me?


    For the purposes of this i've registers

    HOSTNAME.. this has something in the field. I Automatically assumed i would change this to - however after checking with support he told me to leave it as is. which was some crazy name like: Correct?

    NAMESERVERS.. the guy didnt have a clue, he told me to use my registrars name servers.

    i want and

    Here is what i did:
    Logged into my domain registrars account on

    Clicked register name servers

    I have 7 IP addresses with my dedicated server account... so i chose 2 of those. I put one of them in NS1 and another in NS2..

    Back on WMH Setup..

    For primary i put and secondary i put - and i also put the IP i selected for use on my registrars website.

    Is this correct? If so, will automatically start reverting to my new server?

    it previously had its name servers assigned to a shared hosting account, ... i have removed those name servers... do i leave it blank?
