I just signed up with Knownhost using their VPS. I have never used the WHM before, and it is confusing me a little. From what I understand the WHM is used to manage multiple domains on a single server (vps). I only need one domain for the entire server, so I setup one user "oranges" with the domain oranges.com (ok so thats not the real domain :) .
When I purchased the VPS, I had to enter a domain and selected I would transfer later, so I entered oranages.com . 20/20 seeing how WHM works (kinda) I am wondering if they wanted a domain for the server? such as MyWebServer1.com ? Reason being if I enter my ip address in the browser, I get a generic cPanel page, not my test index.html that is uploaded with the "oranges" user.
The email from knownhost says,
You need to create the following name
servers at your registrar:
ns1.oranges.com using IP 204.197.xxx.xxx
ns2.oranges.com using IP 204.197.xxx.xxx
The hostname of the server (under main>DNS functions) is host.oranges.com with the first IP listed above.
namecheap.com has a section: add (register) nameservers that says ns1.oranges.com = and you can input your ip's.
Ok so after all of this, can I just register them with namecheap? and do I need to fowared anything in WHM? or did I botch up the registration? Also I am more than willing to read up on the required stuff, but I can't find anything specific.
