About this question I thought the same.
But I am still having some problems to understand how this works.
I recently need to create a [email protected]
where my hostdomain is host.domain.com I can't create the domain account in cpanel because the DNS Zone already exist domain.com after many attempts I deleted the zone, and double check the basic settings.
And here is when I have problems.
My server nslookup [my first IP] is host.domain.com and my nslookup host.domain.com is [My first IP]
My server nslookup [my second IP] is host2.domain.com and my nslookup host2.domain.com is [My second IP]
But my NS for all the accounts registered in the server are ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com
So there is a mess with the zone of domain.com
some A records like host and host2 are there but other ns records not
and now I have a second zone automated created by cpanel ns2.domain.com
; cPanel first:22.214.171.124 (update_time):1410631008 126.96.36.199: Cpanel::ZoneFile::VERSION:1.3 hostname:host.domain.com latest:188.8.131.52
; Zone file for ns2.domain.com
@ 86400 IN SOA ns1.domain.com. hostmaster.otherdomain.com. (
2014091301 ; serial, todays date+todays
86400 ; refresh, seconds
7200 ; retry, seconds
3600000 ; expire, seconds
86400 ) ; minimum, seconds
ns2.domain.com. 86400 IN NS ns1.domain.com.
ns2.domain.com. 86400 IN NS ns2.domain.com.
ns2.domain.com. IN A [my second IP]
localhost.ns2.domain.com. IN A 127.0.0.1
ns2.domain.com. IN MX 0 ns2.domain.com.
mail IN CNAME ns2.domain.com.
www IN CNAME ns2.domain.com.
ftp IN CNAME ns2.domain.com.
I want to understand
Can you provide me with documentation about cpanel hostname, ns records, and dns zones I think something is not right in my settings
