Hello

I had one server that was using host name test1.domain.com with ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com

Nameservers where registered to domain registrat as well.

Lately i did get a new server as well and i want to use the same domain with hostname test2.domain.com
and nameservers ns3.domain.com ns4.domain.com

I did setup new server with test2.domain.com as hostname , added the nameserver's IPs and A entries for it, registered ns3,ns4 in domain registrat and also did a DNS cluster between the 2 servers .

But for some reason i can't see test2.domain.com or ns3,ns4 to work... Is something i missed?

Hello :)

Please keep in mind that you must setup the "A" records for "NS3/NS4/Test2" on the original server, as that's where the DNS for "domain.com" is handled. A DNS cluster is not helpful if domain names are assigned name servers from just one server in a cluster. I advise disabling the cluster unless you plan on changing the name servers of your domain names.

Thank you.

Hi cPanelMichael! Thank you for reply!
Actually I have the following configuration.
I have a VPS-1 with WHM/Cpanel. I use aaa.myname.com as a hostname. I use my private name servers ns1.myname.com and ns2.myname.com
Recently I ordered a new VPS-2 with WHM/Cpanel, created a DNS cluster. I use bbb.mydomain.com as host name.
Now I wander if I can use the same name servers for VPS-2.
Actually I have a domain(example.me) hosted in VPS-2, which doesn't respond at all. Even in who.is, while you try to search who is example.me, you get zero result.
