I need to create multiple nameserver domains for the same server.

for example.
ns1.firstdomain.com
ns2.firstdomain.com
ns1.seconddomain.com
ns2.seconddomain.com

all on the same server.

The reason is to assist in server migration while retaining the current nameservers, while also retaining the nameservers for an old server using different nameservers, WITHOUT changing the nameservers for every domain on that server, and WITHOUT removing the existing nameservers on the new server, so that 4 different nameservers served from different domains will be valid on a single server.

Please let how to do this with cpanel.

Hello,

You can add as many as you'd like really, by updating the DNS zone file for the domain.
You can add 4 total by going to WHM>>Server Configuration>>Basic WebHost Manager Setup

USELESS REPLY! My question was about adding DIFFERENT DOMAINS FOR NAMESERVERS, and you DID NOT ADDRESS MY QUESTION!! OBVIOUSLY YOU CAN ADD 4 NAMESERVERS, I NEED TO KNOW IF I CAN ADD THEM FROM DIFFERENT DOMAINS ON THE SAME SERVER!!

e.g.
ns1.zzzzz.com
ns2.aaaa.com

First, to set some expectations here, this is a community forum. There is no guarantee of a response within a certain amount of time or a response by cPanel staff here. If you need immediate support from cPanel you need to open a ticket.

Second, this being a community forum, we do have rules and one of those is abusive behavior, trolling and spamming threads is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. Your responses here (including the deleted ones) border on abusive. If you don't understand a response, it's best to request clarification, in a professional manner.

Third, I did answer your question, any domain can have its own custom nameservers and you can have as many as you like on the server. You just need an A record for the nameserver pointing to the server and NS records for the nameservers.

@ramsay1, don't get angry, be calm, you will get your problem solved. It might be because people who see your threads do not know about this, so they don't answer. Also, this is like a place where there is 100s of problems reported daily. Please be calm!
