DNS lookups currently show: A A

and no PTR records.

Is this setup temporary pending you getting the new site on-line? Is your intention to eventually
make point to your Apache server on

I do note that and serve two distinct web
sites, the former just serving a reditection to, and the latter probably
being the old version of

CNAME is short for Canonical Name. It basically allows you to create an alias. You cannot
make a name an alias for an address.

If I have understood you correctly, what you want to do is put a new site online being served
by an Apache server at, accessed through the URL In
that case you will need to modify the A-record for to (assuming $ORIGIN;)

new IN A

and assuming $ORIGIN, you want to have your provider, NuVox Communications,
Greenville, SC 29061, set up a PTR record as follows:


WRT the Apache configuration, I would recommend setting "ServerName", and
"UseCanonicalName On" if you have not already done that.

Once this is done, maybe it will be time to address your original problem again.
