    I have a dedicated server running WHM 11 Accelerated/ Cpanel

    Main IP: 111.11.111.11
    DNS1: 222.22.222.22
    DNS2: 333.33.333.33

    I will be hosting/ building my own sites on the box so I want to assign each
    site dedicated IP and custom nameservers.

    I have created a base package, now I have managed to create the setup
    I want 2 different ways what I need to know is am I right/ wrong, which one
    is the best way and if there is a better way.


    I create an account in WHM, click the reseller option while doing so with
    dedicated IP. So now I have a cpanel/reseller account with

    DNS Zone: mydomain.com / Dedicated IP: 444.44.444.44

    In WHM I click DNS Zone / Add a DNS Zone

    Add IP: 555.55.555.55
    Add DNS A Zone 1 ns1.mydomain.com
    Select Reseller
    Save

    Add IP: 666.66.666.66
    Add DNS A Zone 2 ns2.mydomain.com
    Select Reseller
    Save

    now I have 3 zones & 3 IP
    mydomain.com - 444.44.444.44
    ns1.mydomain.com - 555.55.555.55
    ns2.mydomain.com - 666.66.666.66

    The second way I do it is to use the cpanel accounts IP as 1 of the nameservers and end up like this:

    now I have 3 zones & 2 IP
    mydomain.com - 444.44.444.44
    ns1.mydomain.com - 444.44.444.44
    ns2.mydomain.com - 555.55.555.55


    Opinons and fact welcome...thanks.
