To change your hostname:
1)?Go to: set it there, and allow 1 minute for DA to restart.
2)?The hostname must resolve, so go to: and create an entire new zone: where server.domain.com is your new hostname, the server IP address will usually be your license/main IP, and the ns1/ns2 values can be whatever your domain.com uses. ?Leave the "Create Reverse IP Lookup" checkbox disabled/unchecked.
The reason we add a new zone for the hostname is to ensure that
- it resolves
- it has it's own MX record, so email from the hostname are valid. Without the MX records, many of your emails (eg: from the php/apache "mail()" function) may be rejected.
