    Hello,

    is it possible to configure cPanel to automatically configure more than 4 name servers when new domain is added ?
    In Basic settings there is no option to add more than 4 name servers.

    Thanks

    @sumi21kav,

    Two nameservers is more then enough. Why ? you need more then 4 nameservers, is there any specific requirement ?

    Hello :)

    You could edit the zone templates so the additional name servers are used:

    Edit Zone Templates

    Note that you would have to add in the additional name servers directly to the template, as the variables only allow up to four.

    Thank you.
