    Hi, yes, i know this has been discussed before but any topics seem outdated.

    Basically, i'm having a mindblock and too tired to think straight so, how do you setup custom nameservers properly?

    For example:

    Existing server setup:

    Server hostname: / 123.456.7.890 / 123.456.7.891

    At present any domains use the above nameservers but i now have another domain which i wish to have it's own nameservers using the 2 above IP Address's. (sharing nameservers ip's) So in addition to the above nameservers i would also be able to use: / 123.456.7.890 / 123.456.7.891

    Any advice is greatly appreciated, Thank you.

    Hello :)

    You can configure the second set of name servers the same way you configured the first set. Register the name servers at your domain registrar with those IP addresses. Then, add "A" entries for those name servers pointing to those IP addresses via:

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

    This is all that's required on the cPanel server.

    Thank you.
