    Hi,

    I notice slow response times with domains (not cached by nameservers) that have a tld that is different from the nameservers' tld.
    dnsreport.com mentions this also

    For example:
    I use nameservers that have a .com tld.
    .us domains seem to take longer to resolve than .com domains on the same server.

    Would this problem be solved by adding extra nameservers in WHM?
    How can I do this? (it seems the only way is to create reseller accounts)

    For .us domains I would then use:
    ns1.nameserver.us
    ns2.nameserver.us

    For .com/.net/.org domains I would use :
    ns1.nameserver.com
    ns2.nameserver.com

    Is there a way I can select different nameservers without have to create resellers?

    Sure. When you click "Server Setup" there is an option for "Managing Nameservers". Click that. Then at the bottom of the page there is a box for creating a new nameserver. That should do it.
