Help with setting up nameservers

    Hey there! Most of the nameserver configuration happens outside of cPanel, so while we can offer advice, your situation is going to be unique depending on which registrar you're using. You're going to want to work through two sections - the "WHM Interfaces" option and the "various registrars option" here:

    Thanks for replying cPRex, yes I have setup the nameservers at the registrar and I think I have the A records setup but not for sure on that one? Where do I enter these A records at? Are they on the domain account I am using in WHM? I suspect given the websites are displaying that is not an issue. Although the domain I have configured as the server domain returns an error with the cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi web page. Also for the life of me I cannot get rDNS working at all.

    These would be in the DNS zone for the domain, wherever that DNS is hosted. For example, let's say you have domain.com and you are creating ns1 and ns2.domain.com. Inside the zone file for domain.com you'd need the following: ns1. IN A x.x.x.x ns2. IN A x.x.x.x domain.com. IN NS ns1.domain.com. domain.com. IN NS ns2.domain.com. where "x.x.x.x" is the IP address you've got them registered with at the registrar. rDNS is something that has to be configured by your host. You won't have access to that on your personal server.
