How to Fix /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi in Cpanel
First, check the domain’s A record, check dns zone and use commands like host, dig A to get this.
Then search the virtualhost entry of that domain apache conf (/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf)
If he domain in question is “domain.com”, Search for domain.com in your apache conf. You can see some entries as follows.
The domain is set to on 10.10.10.10 in apache conf, so the domain should have A record set to 10.10.10.10 and the domain should resolve to 10.10.10.10 from all around the world to get the wesbite, otherwise it will give cPanel default page.
