    To All,

    I have a VPS account on Go-Daddy plus all my domains are on Go-Daddy as well.

    When I setup a new domain on Go Daddy it sets up a nameserver automatically and not always the same one for each domain i.e.(NS25.DOMAINCONTROL.COM). When I setup a new site on my VPS it also assigns a nameserver i.e. (ns1.secureserver.net.). Which one should I use when editing the DNZ Zone File on Go Daddy?

    I am sort of DNS handicapped so if I am asking a silly question please feel free to point that out.

    Regards

    David Terrazas

    David,

    I would suggest you to setup your private nameservers at Go-Daddy first then login to WHM and navigate to "Home » Server Configuration » Basic cPanel & WHM Setup" and put private nameservers there. Make sure to create A records for them as well and do not check "Use the nameservers specified at the Domain's Registrar. (Ignore locally specified nameservers.)" option while setting up new cPanel account.
