Hi forum,

just got in here from aws free trial, is there a quick pointer on name server records? i setup a load of domains with the default assuming it was a valid name server and set the dns records in the registrar for ns1 and ns2 cprapid :p

whats the best options? - set records manually with the registrar overtime a new domain is setup or create a name server for cpanel (does this mean having 2 cpanel accounts for primary and secondary on a different ip address block ? )

thanks bert

Hey there! The "cprapid" nameservers are just a placeholder to get the automated hostname working. For your own domains, you'd want to setup custom nameservers if you want to manage all the DNS records in one place.

The following article explains how you can set that up:


but let me know if you have questions!
