Problem Using Addon Domain in Cpanel

On March 5, 2014, in Cpanel/WHM, Website Tips, by seo-admin


Sorry, the domain is already pointed to an IP address that does not appear to use DNS servers associated with this server. Please transfer the domain to this servers nameservers or have your administrator add one of its nameservers to /etc/ips.remotedns and make the proper A entries on that remote nameserver.

If you getting the error above when using Addon Domains or Parked Domains in Cpanel then you need to add you name server IP to ips.remotedns via SSH. You will need root access to your VPS or Dedicated server.


  • Login via SSH as root
  • Type:pico /etc/ips.remotedns
  • Add at least 1 of your Name Server’s IP Address
  • Press CTRL-O and ENTER to save.

Try adding your domain again via cPanel.
