Hoping someone can answer a few questions regarding Enom nameservers and the possiblity that my plan may be completley stupid.
With my current hosting package I can create my own private nameservers and have done so. Everything works well and in a WHOIS you see, ns1.domain.com, ns2.domain.com etc.
I was told I should use Enom's (where my domain is registered) as they use 5 maybe 6 nameservers all seperated geographically. My problem with this is I would like WHOIS information to list, ns1.domain.com.
Now, from my very limited DNS knowledge, I could create a CNAME to point to the corresponding Enom nameserver. Is this right? So, ns1.domain.com would cname to dns1.name-services.com and I could keep my ns1.domain.com etc.
The reason I wanted to use Enom's is for the geographic seperation, as I my site hosted in two parts of the world, so wanted to have the US version for us visitors and the eu version for european visitors.
Are there any problems with this plan, is it pointless for instance? Or would there be a couple of extra hops involved to resolve the domain which would slow things down?
you could actually brand your namservers over enom's and use that now that I think about it. Just create nameservers using the same IPs as their servers. I do this with my hosts nameservers to make them my own
