Just a question ,

suppose that I have my dedicated server with cpanel and my dns
for example

NS.HOST1.COM
NS2.HOST1.COM

All my clients use DNS above for their domain name (to resolve their domain names).

Now suppose that I add another dedicated server .
I will able to use the same name servers above or I will need to use different namevers for the new server ?

Thank you.

You &can& use the name server you have now. On the new server in WHM click server setup you will see a place to put the master name servers IP. Then create a trust relationship under dns functions. Now when you create an account it will add the DNS entry to the main server.

Of course it would be much better to have you secondary name server on the other dedicated box but that's up to you.
