    Hi, my dedicated server actually had their own nameservers

    ns1.maindomain.com
    ns2.maindomain.com
    With their respective ips for each one

    This is what i want:

    Create another pair of nameserver to use on a specific group of domains

    ns1.secondarydomain.com
    ns2.secondarydomain.com
    With their respective ips for each one?

    Can i do this by WHM?

    A workaround will be very appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    You could setup a reseller account and assign that reseller their own name servers per the instructions on the following document:

    Edit Reseller Nameservers and Privileges - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Then, use that reseller account when creating new accounts that you want to use those name servers. Additionally, ensure you setup the new name servers at the domain registrar by following the instructions documented on the following URL:

    How to Set Up Nameservers in a cPanel Environment - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    Michael i have two questions my friend
    Can i use a same ip for different nameservers?
    for example: use the same ip for ns1.domain1.com and ns1.domain2.com
    Can i use the ip of the nameservers to assign it to an account as dedicated ip?

    Hello,

    Yes, you can use the same IP address for multiple name servers, and also assign the IP address to an account.

    Thank you.
