OK - to clarify for those who did not understand the first question:

  • LAMP/cPanel Server hostname
  • Nameservers used for OTHER domains are and ON THIS SERVER
  • I now have a new server which I wish to be called
  • I also wish to use the domain on the NEW server
  • Aside from the ns1 and ns2 A-records already in existance pointing at srv1, what additional A-Records do I need to create on the domain to make this happen?

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I have read this three times now and I have absolutely no idea what you want to do and why, and what your problem is. Please reformulate the question so that you describe what your underlying problem is, how you try to solve it and what kind of problem you have with that solution. A little bit of structure for the text would also help, the formatting tools are there for a reason. – Sven Mar 16 '12 at 1:31
I was going to say as much as SvenW. I am REALLY unclear what the problem is here. – Publiccert Mar 16 '12 at 2:20

  1. Create an A record point at your new server's IP address for
  2. Create either another A record for pointing at the same IP address or a CNAME pointing to

I don't really get why this is a hard problem, or why you think your NS records need to get involved in this.
