Error while adding domain in cPanel:
"Error from park wrapper: Using nameservers with the following IPs:, 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."

The reason you get this error is because the domain you're adding exists and can be resolved on the internet. cPanel attempts to prevent you from adding a name locally when it should not exist.

To Fix:
- Logon to WHM
- Select Tweak Settings under Server Setup
- Put checkboxes next to both: Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that are not registered
- Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that resolve to other servers (ie 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.]
