There are probably answers to this problem somewhere within these forums, but searching has brought up confusing scraps and outdated info especially the WHM set up functions - the menu items seem to have changed. I'm currently using WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.0-C94.

I'm migrating from Ensim server .... so unfamiliar with the WHM/CPanel way ...

My requirement is to use a single registered domain to provide 4 name servers over 2 CPanel servers.

So, my domain 'myhosting.com' has been registered at registrar and been set up to be nameserver using ns1 - ns4 range.

For the exercise let's say Server 1 at my Data Centre has IPs

20.10.5.1 (Main IP)
20.10.5.2

Server 2 at my Data Centre has IPs

20.10.5.3 (Main IP)
20.10.5.4

My nameservers are then set at registrar to be:

ns1.myhosting.com - 20.10.5.1
ns2.myhosting.com - 20.10.5.2
ns3.myhosting.com - 20.10.5.3
ns4.myhosting.com - 20.10.5.4

On Server 1 I want to set up the myhosting.com main web site and other virtual hosts using nameservers ns1.myhosting.com & ns2.myhosting.com

On Server 2 I want to set up more virtual sites using nameservers ns3.myhosting.com & ns4.myhosting.com

So - is anybody brave enough to put forward the definitive 'modernised' set up guide for this that gives an error free dnsreport from dnsstuff.com??

You may want to look into dns clustering.
