CPanel domain not working properly: http://vps.thedomain.com/domainnotknown.html Solution

The Cause

Basically it's usually because your Cpanel has new IPs and the old IPs it knows are no longer available/working/valid.

The solution is to change the site's IP but you may run into issues for various reasons.  Here is what I encountered below.

It redirects there even though public_html is empty and doesn't have any index or htaccess redirect.



---
This issue happened after a CPanel migration, the site is being set to an old IP, this is the problem.

-------
You need to use the "Change Site's IP Address" feature.
---------
Changing ip for thedomain.com (thedomain) to ip.ip.ip.ip
Setting up for ip change..... Done
Sorry, ip.ip.ip.ip is in use by another domain name and is not a shared ip.
======
1. You need to change root's shared IP

"Basic cPanel & WHM Setup"
Basic Config

2. Then change the site's IP address.
3. Then restart Apache
