    Good evening, this is probably something really simple but none the less i cant seem to find the answer.

    I have always run things with each webserver doing all its own thing but wanted try to outsource some of the services, i have decided to dedicate the dns to geo located servers running dns only.

    All domains eg IANA — Example domains or work perfectly after the change to the remote name servers however subdomains like the following do not resolve.

    Correction:: all subdomains work fine except for on cpanel account its main domain works but its subdomains do not.


    This is causing me some headaches, i have checked the dns zones and the A records for the subdomains are there and pointing to the correct location. I have tried removing and recreating a subdomain and the same issue is occuring.

    my setup is as follows.

    Webserver sync to
    -- ns1
    -- ns2

    NS1 and NS2 do not sync on each of the dns only control panels the webserver is set to stand alone.
