    I have read a lot about nameserver in this forum but I have a few questions still.

    I am using a single Go Daddy dedicated server so I only have 1 server currently. Should I use Go Daddy's nameservers or is it safe to use 2 or 3 IP addresses on my server as nameservers?

    Can I use shared websites using these IP addresses or do they have to be exclusive to nameservers?

    If I want to have all new registered domains automatically be parked, do I need seperate nameservers for parked pages?

    Thanks for the information,
    --Jeff

    My recommendation would be to use your private nameservers on dedicated server instead of Go daddy's nameservers, why? it will save you a lot of manual work other wise you would have to manually create dns entry at Go daddy for every time you create a subdomain , parked domain or an addon domain on your dedicated server. cPanel automatically creates required dns entries when ever you create a new subdomain/parked/addon domain so while using nameservers on your dedicated server , dns changes will take effect automatically without giving you headache for any additional manual work.

    While you use two or three IPs for nameservers (two are enough though) you can reside number of domains on those IP address.
