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

    right now I have a server with nameservers ip1@server1 ip2@server1

    I got a second server and I would like to set up nameservers at second server like : ip1@server2 ip2@server2

    here is how I did it.

    First :: I went to domain registrar and create 2 new nameservers ( and on my domain

    but I leave the name servers for as ip1@server1 ip2@server1

    I didn't add the newly created and

    Second :: I went to my server1 and edit the DNS zone for . I added the following 2 records A ip1@server2 A ip2@server2

    restart bind

    Thrid :: I went to my server2 and added two new DNS zones there. they are and . 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 and

    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?
