    Hi guys

    I've just taken out a hosting account with someone and have had CPanel installed on my server but I seam to be having a few problems.

    I have my domain and obviously need to set up name server to be able to host other domains. So under the "Name Server IPs" page I have created 2 name servers to obviously 2 different IP addresses. Is that all I have to do, or do I need to make some changes to the domain DNS records.

    I have pointed a domain at the name servers and get some serious errors at DNSReports.com

    Please can someone help me out here I'm really stuck!

    You can't simply create NS on your server and expect them to work.
    You need to register ns1.your_domain.com as a name_server at your domain registrar along with its IP.

    Yep, you just need glue records set up at the registrar level.

    As far as I can tell, these are just fancy A records but are a whole lot more permanent.

    It's quite likely that you can do this through your domain registrar's control panel.
