issues with domain mapping - help!

so I have followed the instructions, and watched vimeo vid and still having problems mapping a domain to an alias generated.

Basically it ignores the mapping and points to an empty account on my server (I have a reseller account on site5.com)

I went into my site5.com whm and checked my dns zones and DNS record A is indeed pointing in the right ip.. so I'm stuck.

    hey

    do you have a dedicated ip for that cpanel account? i mean not for your whm just for site5.com. if so then you simply point the A record from your domain registrar (e.g godaddy) by going to the advance dns settings..(dont need to point name servers then)

    if you dont have a dedicated ip for that particular site, then you park the domain, and point the nameserver from your domain registrar to your site

    hope that helps

    i dont think I have a dedicated IP for my iphone5ed.com domain. It's pretty much the same one as the my main reseller host. So I then when into my main host cPanel and tried to park the iphone domain and recieved an error saying that I was not the owner.

    Then I went into the iphone5 cPanel and tried to park it and it said Error from park wrapper: You cannot park your main domain!

    My last recourse is to go into the domain registar... which I did there is an option to redirect a domain

    so I followed the advice in the domain mapping plug "you will need to add a DNS "A" record pointing at the IP address of this server: 174.120.1.226" and still getting the same result.

    you would need a dedicated ip for the cpanel iphone5ed.com if you are pointing the A Record directly from the registrar

    So I then when into my main host cPanel and tried to park the iphone domain and recieved an error saying that I was not the owner.

    you need to park in the cpanel of iphone5ed.com not the main whm/cpanel . if you are getting an error, contact your hosting company to see why you are getting that error. i am currently using domain mapping on reseller account as well. i do not have dedicated ip for any of the cpanels, so i have parked the domains in their respective cpanels adn pointed the name servers from my domain registrar

Thank NAME, for their help.
