Manual Resolv.conf EditsOn most Linux servers the resolv.conf file is located at /etc/resolv.conf. Using SSH and your favorite shell-based text editor you can make manual changes to the resolv.conf file which will take effect immediately as soon as you save your changes.
The Web Host Manager and Resolv.confIf you are operating a Dedicated server or VPS server running Linux and cPanel you can log in to your server’s Web Host Manager (WHM) and look at the resolvers your server is using. Log in to your WHM as root and find the link on the left called Resolver Configuration:
On the next screen click on the Proceed button as indicated below.
You will be taken to a page showing your server’s configured resolvers, an example of which is below. These are the IP addresses of the servers inside the Liquid Web network that handle your server’s DNS requests. Depending on your server, you may have anywhere from one to three IP addresses listed here.
Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary are the different priority levels of your server’s resolvers. The Primary resolver is the DNS resolver that your server will always try to contact first, then the second and then the third if necessary. Please note that these server IPs should automatically be configured on your server with Liquid Web and should not be changed. If you have any questions regarding changing these IPs please contact Liquid Web support using the information below. === Liquid Web’s Heroic Support is always available to assist customers with this or any other issue.
