    I am in the process of setting up cpanel and need some guidance in getting this correct.

    I would like to run a nameserver (bind for example) on the same server that cpanel is running on such that the cpanel server can also double as one of two name servers for hosted domains.

    Is this possible within cpanel, or do I need to run and configure bind outside of cpanel? If it is possible to manage within cpanel what are the screens/steps I need to use to configure this.

    For example:
    The cpanel server is: has 1 NIC with 3 IP addresses:

    I would like to setup it up such that: = =

    Furthermore I would like to configure my hosted domains to use this for its nameservers: has nameserver entries of, and has nameserver entries of, and

    Hopefully I haven't over complicated a simple question!

    Thanks for your guidance.

    Your example should work fine. Check this site for additional info:
    The only change would be to not use in the resolv.conf but instead the main IP of your server.
