If you have a VPS or Dedicated server running cPanel, and your server is also running private nameservers, you will find the Web Host Manager’s (WHM’s) interface very useful when it comes to updating, creating, or removing DNS zone files for your domains.
Times are changing, and possibly your hostname is too if you are reading this article. You may have come across a scenario within the business that requires you to change your hostname. You might ask yourself why you would need to change your hostname? The most common scenarios would be due to a domain name change, your business has changed its course, or because you have thought of something better.
Sometimes you might forget to renew the domain names before they expire. Unfortunately, this can be a time where a domain broker purchases the domain name out from under you. These are agencies that take popular sites and purchase with the intent of holding the domain until their inflated price is met. As unfortunate as this may be, sometimes it is best to purchase a new domain name for cost efficiency.

- If the main domain uses other nameservers, such as at a registrar, you will need to log in there and add an “A” record for the hostname in the main domain’s DNS zone file. The record should point to the server’s primary IP address.
