    I have been really confused about this and wondering if this could possibly impact my server performance.

    I have setup multiple accounts on my cPanel server - and I prefer to use cPanel as web server only and not DNS server. For DNS, i am using AWS Route 53 service for all my accounts on the same server.

    As you might know, Route 53 assigns different name servers for each domain, I could not really provide a single set of name servers while setting up my server hence I provide a dummy one.

    I was wondering if having it setup this way would have any adverse impact on performance of my websites or performance of WHM/cPanel login?

    One more question -
    I know I can select name servers at registrars while setting up an account. Is there any way to change it afterwards?

    Hello :)
    There's no negative impact on your websites if you use false local name servers when the DNS is handled on a remote server. There's never any DNS interaction with the cPanel server when visitors access the website because the DNS is handled remotely.

    Yes, you can change the name servers for a domain name via "WHM >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone".

    Thank you.
