    Hello. I am creating an AWS hosted network for my company website(s). I am having issue with the DNS, and how to set them up.

    Do I need a separate server for each nameserver? i.e. ns1.mydomain.net, ns2.mydomain.net, they each being their own AWS EC2 Instance?

    If so, how would I go about setting them up internally? Do I do the following,
    • set the HOSTNAME to the correct FQDN ns1.mydomain.net and ns2.mydomain.net
    • create an A Host Record at mydomain.net, and point ns1 & ns2 to the Elastic IP of the AWS EC2 Instances
    • and create a final EC2 instance for cpanel/whm, cluster the ns1/ns2.
    Or am I doing something wrong?

    Best Regards,
    Travis Vogel

    I tried to follow that, but that was awhile ago. What confuses me in the setup is this.

    The DNS Servers ns1.domain.com, ns2.domain.com.

    The cpanel/whm nameservers during setup, are they the registar nameservers i.e. (godaddy or aws route 53), and is there anything else I have to setup locally in configs or etc on the server itself for it to work?

    You will still need to configure the name servers like you would on any other server. There's a tutorial on this at:

    Thank you.
