    I currently have 1 dedicated server up and running. Lets just call it THis server is set up with and and as a hostname I use

    Now, I have purchased another server. I have set this server up with and and as nameservers.
    In the dns record I have added an entry for the hostname of the new server ( and the main ip-address, but that's it.

    Now, the question is; Where should I update all the dns records? I presume for all the domains setup on my new server, I should edit the dns records on this server and not my first server ( and no editing should be needed on the old server? or de I also need to add the ns3. and ns4. records to my first server?

    I hope all of this makes sense and that somebody can provide an answer.
