I am helping a client turn up a new webserver that will be using cpanel.
So far, the client has registered a new domain with their registar, created A records for base.domain.com, ns1 and ns2.domain.com and pointed them to the server they have purchased. I'm not one for running two nameserver on one ip / one box, but hey, I do what they ask.
They do not want to use their registar for name services for the main domain, they want the zone to be ns1 / ns2 inside of cpanel.
Are they on the right steps to do this? Once cpanel is installed on this fresh server, I assume they'd just create a zone for the domain and matching records and then after propagation through nameservers, just swap what they have at their registar to point the domain at the new nameservers?
