    Hi,

    I now have my second server in place and am getting a bit confused about the set up.

    Heres what i have...

    Server 1 (woof.purple-paw.com)
    ns1.purple-paw.com
    ns2.purple-paw.com

    Server 2 (set up with name miaow.purple-paw.com)

    I have created an A record on server 1 for miaow to point to the main IP of the second server. I have also created nameservers (ns3 and ns4) with the domain registrar. I havent added anything on server1 or server2 concerning these 2 new nameservers.

    Is this all I have to do? Will this work? Should miaow.purple-paw.com resolve for pings and traces?

    Also, if the above set up is correct, when I add accounts to my new server, will the temporary address for accounts be http://miaow.purple-paw.com?

    Thanks for any help!


    Also if the above will

    Yes, that A record , provided it is setup right, will propagate down to everybody within a few days of when you added it. You reloaded the nameserver, right?

    And, your temp addresses will be:

    http://miaow.purple-paw.com/~USERNAME/


    (on the second server)

    Hi,

    Thanks. The nameservers and hostname appear to be working fine now. But what about FTP and mail. I presumed ftp.miaow.purple-paw.com and mail.miaow.purple-paw.com would work but they do not. Do I need to add further records on the old server or register these with the domain registrar as well?

    Thanks.
