O.k I'm lost. I just finished reading the How TO sticky above for the third time on how to setup nameservers in the WHM and I'm still no sure what I'm doing. I'm a web designer for a company that just recently rented a new dedicated server for several upcoming websites we are planning on launching and hosting on set server. We have a dedicated with a single IP address (is that enough for a NS?) and I have root access and was planning on creating several accounts inside the WHM for each site. Our other hosting providers we've dealt with usually provided us with their own nameserver service so I've never had to set one up. I just went to my registrar and added the two hosting NS's in replacement of theirs...and waited for propagation to take place.
- Now if I was planning on using the domain domain.com for one of the sites which will be on my server. Would I go to the "root account’s default nameservers" and just come up with a nameserver called ns1.domain.com & ns2.domain.com?
- Something which also wasn't mentioned in the How To sticky was do I have to do anything on my domain registrars end to point my domain to my server's IP...like create an "A Record" with my IP address in the DNS settings?
- If I'm planning on having at least three different sites each with their own domain on my server do I have to create a new nameserver for each or just use the ns1.domain.com & ns2.domain.com ones and add them with the domains in question on my registrars side while in the WHM I go to DNS Functions > Edit DNS Zone and find the account and under the nameserver list make sure its ns1.domain.com & ns2.domain.com?
Thanks for the help and time if anyone can point me in the right direction.
