Cpanel Keeps telling me this:

IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.
The hostname (ds1.prontrials.com) resolves to 67.215.65.132.  It should resolve to 193.200.164.74.  Please be sure to correct /etc/hosts as well as the 'A' entry in zone file for the domain.

Some are all of these problems can be caused by
/etc/resolv.conf being setup incorrectly.  Please check this file if you
believe everything else is correct.

Can you tell me what do I need to do to change where ds1.prontrials.com ip is pointing to? the name servers seem to be showing the correct ip but I do not have clue as to why the hostname dose not do the same. Any suggestions is much appreciated.

Hi,

Have you checked the zone file ? The zone file is located at

/var/named/domainname.com.db

Also make sure that the ip is setup correctly at the following locations

/etc/hosts
/etc/resolv.conf

and reload named using

service named reload
