    So, I have re-seller hosting and bought a domain on Namecheap. I already am hosting a primary domain from Ipage. I put my hosts name-servers info in the custom DNS name-servers boxes located on Namecheap. What do I have to do next? I have read quite a bit and am still confused. Do I have to set up Wildcard or something? I just want this fresh domain to go live so I can add a template to it. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    ok with your host that you have the reseller hosting account with they should have sent you a welcome email that would have the name servers for you
    ex.
    ns1.yourhostcompany.com 123.12.123.12
    ns2.yourhostcompany.com 123.12.123.12

    You can ask them to put in a custom name server on the serve for you. Usually the IP address will stay the same with your custom name server.

    Once that is done you will need to go to your domain company and set up the host record with your new name server and put the ip address in.

    once you do this then point the domain name that you want to put on the new server and put in the new name server settings.

    Once you do this then you are ready to start adding sites.

    Then in whm you will need to set up packages so you can add new hosting accounts to the server.

    hope this helps and the best of luck.

    You have to point the domain name to your ipgaes hosting server. You can find some very useful videos below.
