How to change my hostname?
Posted by Pacific Host on 04 December 2011 04:50 PM
Log into WHM

Under Networking Setup click Hostname

Next to New Hostname: enter your new hostname. (Must be a subdomain. Example server.yourdomain.com) and click Change.

After you change your hostname you should add an A record for it and make sure it is correct under Basic cPanel/WHM Setup which is under the section Server Configuration in WHM.

To add an A record for your hostname in WHM scroll to the section DNS Functions and click Add an A Entry for your Hostname
