hi I just wonder if anyone could help me on this.

right now I have a server with nameservers

ns1.ehost.com [email protected]
ns2.ehost.com [email protected]

I got a second server and I would like to set up nameservers at second server like :

ns3.ehost.com [email protected]
ns4.ehost.com [email protected]

here is how I did it.

First :: I went to domain registrar and create 2 new nameservers (ns3.ehost.com and ns4.ehost.com)based on my domain

but I leave the name servers for ehost.com as

ns1.ehost.com [email protected]
ns2.ehost.com [email protected]

I didn't add the newly created ns3.ehost.com and ns4.ehost.com


Second :: I went to my server1 and edit the DNS zone for ehost.com . I added the following 2 records

ns3.ehost.com A [email protected]
ns4.ehost.com A [email protected]

restart bind


Thrid :: I went to my server2 and added two new DNS zones there. they are ns3.ehost.com and ns4.ehost.com . I am sure they are pointed to the correct ip. I checked cpanel and cpanel listed them as name servers as well


Fourth :: I added a domain to server2 and modify its name servers to use ns3.ehost.com and ns4.ehost.com

and yes, this domain(web site) can display correctly but it takes about 3~5 minutes for its first load on IE every time. It seems it takes a while to tell where this web site is pointed ......

did I do anything wrong?

thanks
