    Hi,

    Is it possible for reseller nameservers to use the same IPs as the main nameservers do?
    If so how do I do this?

    For example

    Server main nameservers IPs
    ns1: 1.1.1.1
    ns2: 1.1.1.2

    Reseller nameservers IPs
    ns1: 1.1.1.1
    ns2: 1.1.1.2

    Yes, this will work in exactly the same way as your main nameservers - just create the appropriate A records for the reseller nameservers and also ensure that you have created the nameserver host records at the registry for them too - you can map as many nameservers at the same IPs as you wish.

    Hello :)

    Yes, simply create the name servers at the domain registrar with the appropriate IP addresses, and then add the "A" records to the zone via "WHM >> Edit DNS Zone".

    Thank you.
