  1. Hey,

    Thanks fot the great guide. I tried to follow this but get the error;

    Error: (XID 8rnkax) This domain points to an IP address that does not use the DNS servers associated with this server. Transfer the domain to this server’s nameservers at the domain’s registrar or update your system to recognize the current DNS servers. To do this, use WHM’s Configure Remote Service IPs interface.”

    Unsure what I am missing..
    Thanks!
