    If we implement that how do the server knows to what account the domain should point to? Obviously this need to be of different IPs right? Or how exactly does it work?

    Can anyone tell?

    Can one server have several private name servers set ?

    Say ns1.maindomain.com handle some and ns1.someotherdomains.com refer to another?

    Hello :)

    You have referenced the following option in "WHM » Server Configuration » Tweak Settings" under the "Domains" tab:

    "Allow domain parking across accounts"

    Per it's description, enabling this option will allow users to park domains (including creation of addon domains) on top of domains owned by other users. Thus, let's say one account is named "example.com". With this option enabled, another account could create an addon domain name called "123.example.com" if it did not already exist.

    Thank you.

    Thanks cPanelMichael.

    I suggest this explanation should go on docs: Tweak Settings as well.

    I went crazy understanding the feature first :)
