I need to setup a DNS zone in WHM which points ns1 and ns2.mysite.com to IP addresses on my server, I just have no Idea how I do this and don't want to do trial and error in case I mess it up, so was wondering if someone could walk me through the steps.
I have the ip addresses that I used on the main domian at namecheap.com but there are two ip addresses, one for ns1. and one for ns2.
But when I go into WHM and click on "Add DNS Zone" it just gives the option for one IP and one domain so not sure what I am supposed to be doing.VPS Hosting DNShostingDomain Name Server
Here are the detailed steps for you for adding the nameservers using the WHM -
1. Login to WH using "https://hostname/whm" or "https://ip_of_the_server:2087"
2. Once you will logged in search for the option DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone.
3. Select the domain name you want to use, and then click Edit.
4. For the two rows with the menu displaying NS, edit the right-most columns to ns1.your domain name. and ns2.your domain name., respectively.
Please note, you have to enter a "." after your nameserver for working of the DNS properly.
5.Add first line in the section 'Add New Entries Below this Line' -
First field: Type ns1
Second field: Type 14400
Third field: Select A
Fourth field: Enter your server's IP address (that is IP address associated with the nameserver ns1.)
Similarly, add the record for ns2 entry.
Hope this will help you. :)
