When you try to create/add an addon domain via CPanle, you may get this error message:
QuoteError from park wrapper: Using nameservers with the following IPs: xx.xx.xx.xx,xx.xx.xx.xx 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.

There are two possibilities of this case:

  • [spoiler=The nameservers of the domain is not pointing to the proper nameservers]Most probably you were trying to add the domain as an addon domain from Cpanel. CPanel will not allow it if the domain is not pointing to the correct Nameservers that are setup on the server. In order to setup this domain, create a subdomain from cPanel fill it with your content and then use the feature from the WHM, Park a domain, to addon the domain , which will point the new domain to your subdomain. [/spoiler]

  • [spoiler=Congurations in WHM tweak settings]In WHM, find in the menu Server Configuration -> Tweak Settings.

    Within this page you get a lot of options, the one you had to enable (tick) was Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that resolve to other servers (i.e. domain transfers) This can be a major security problem. If you must have it enabled, be sure to not allow users to park common internet domains.

    This was not enabled by default and, basically, it allows cPanel to Add domains on to external nameservers.

    You can also enable the Allow users to park subdomains of the serverââ,¬â,,¢s hostname main domain[/spoiler]
