    Hi,

    Registered Nameservers look like this at domain register.
    1. NS1.MYDOMAIN.COM
    2. NS2.MYDOMAIN.COM
    3. NS3.MYDOMAIN.COM
    4. NS4.MYDOMAIN.COM
    5. NS5.MYDOMAIN.COM
    6. NS6.MYDOMAIN.COM
    7. NS7.MYDOMAIN.COM
    8. NS8.MYDOMAIN.COM

    2 nameservers for each server. MYDOMAIN.COM is not a active account on any server. Is the correct way to use the same domain for multiple nameservers? Would hate to see this blow up in my face. Seems to work OK minus the very large message logs that are created because of view external: query (cache) NS5.MYDOMAON.COM/AAAA/IN' denied. Seems that every NS*.MYDOMAIN.COM not on the server ends up with that message.

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    There is no need to use eight name servers if they are all hosted on the same server. Instead, you could just configure two name servers at your domain registrar with IP addresses associated with your server. Then, set the domain names to use those two name servers at the registrar. On the cPanel server, ensure the "A" records are added for the name servers pointing to those same IP addresses.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I should clarify.
    Server 1 uses
    NS1.MYDOMAIN.COM
    NS2.MYDOMAIN.COM
    Server 2 uses:
    NS3.MYDOMAIN.COM
    NS4.MYDOMAIN.COM
    Server 3 uses:
    NS5.MYDOMAIN.COM
    NS6.MYDOMAIN.COM
    Server 4 uses:
    NS7.MYDOMAIN.COM
    NS8.MYDOMAIN.COM

    Just to quote myself :)
    Thanks

    Yes, that is a valid configuration. However, you should ensure the "A" records for those name servers are added at the DNS host of "mydomain.com".

    Thank you.
