i got this message from my VPS server:

IMPORTANT: Do not ignore this email.

Your hostname ( could not be resolved to an IP
address. This means that /etc/hosts is not set up correctly, and/or
there is no dns entry for Please be sure that
the contents of /etc/hosts are configured correctly, and also that
there is a correct 'A' entry for the domain in the zone file.

Some or all of these problems can be caused by /etc/resolv.conf
being setup incorrectly. Please check that file if you believe
everything else is correct.

You may be able to automatically correct this problem by using the
'Add an A entry for your hostname' option under 'Dns Functions' in
your Web Host Manager.

i was going in the ect/hosts and faound this, but i dont know how to fix it.

CODE        localhost.localdomain localhost

Contact your provider for dns support.
Don't try to fix this unless you're an experienced server admin.
