/etc/init.d/hostname.sh start
hostname -f should then show server1.mydomain.com.
after this command it still shows
sbs-p11p.asbs.yahoodns.net

may be you can help with the correct steps if i have a VPS unmanaged with CentOS / Ubuntu 9.04 (whichever we need) and a domain name from yahoo.

as for the VPS i have the main ip, ssh ip, the username and password and nothing else

yahoo domain i have access to the control panel and i can change A-Record, Cname and stuff like this.

Can you help from the start on what to do and how to connect the domain to the hosting and the rest.

Thank you so much. This will be very helpful for me and many others.
