Name Server Options

3 options exist when you have a Managed VPS Server:

1. You could manage all your dns via the client area under Manage DNS Feature using :
vdns1.hkdns.co.za
vdns2.hkdns.co.za

Though this means its quite a manual process and that dns changes made within the cpanel interface does not take effect.

2. You could create 2 x A records pointing to the VPS server IP address:

ns1 and ns2.yourdomain and that will work but basically no redundancy exists and they are not "real" DNS servers.

3. Purchase 2 additonal x VPS Mini Servers and install cPanel DNS Only server software onto them and link them to the Managed VPS server (Recommended)
This way it is the same setup as large hosting providers and DNS is only shared amongst your domains on your VPS servers.
