    Hey everyone,

    I maintain a setup where I've got 6 nameservers up and running and want to have all my domains use all 6. When I go into Basic WebHost Manager® Setup it has places for 4 servers, and when I use WHMCS General Settings it's got places for 5 servers, but the new domains only get the 4 listed in cPanel.

    Is there any way to have all 6 be defaults for all new domains?

    Cheers,
    Eric

    As WHM is providing options for 4 NS so its quite hard to have 6 NS still if you want to add then by editing DNS zone for particular domain add more NS there. Any plan to have 6 NS? Use DNS clustering instead of that.

    Hello,

    You can edit the default zone templates so that additional NS entries are utilized:

    "WHM >> DNS Functions >> Edit Zone Templates"

    For the 5th and 6th name servers, you'd need to enter them directly as part of the zone template as opposed to using a "%nameserver%" variable.

    Thank you.

    Thank you, that seems to work.
