I have already a didcated server that uses custom nameservers of my main domain (ns1.mysite.com / ns2.mydomain.com )

I bought another server & want to use the same nameserver or similar ( ns3.mysite.com / ns4.mysite.com )

Is this possible? I'm using WHM/Cpanel to manage both servers.

While it's not totally clear what you're asking I'll venture to say that yes, it is possible.

  1. If you mean that you purchased another domain and you want to host the DNS zone for this domain on your "custom" name servers (although there's no such thing as custom name servers, or custom domains, or custom email addresses) then yes, this is not only possible but very common.

  2. If you mean that you purchased another server and you want the new server to use the "custom" name servers for DNS name resolution, then yes, this is possible as long as the "custom" name servers will perform recursive lookups for the new server.

Thank you my answer is 2 ! i need to use the old nameservers in the new server. can you please explain 'this is possible as long as the "custom" name servers will perform recursive lookups for the new server.' –  hutchbat Mar 2 '12 at 20:54
    
I mean that if the name servers will perform recursive resolution on behalf of DNS clients for domains that the name servers are not authoratative for then this will work for you. –  joeqwerty Mar 2 '12 at 21:01
