I'm starting playing with nameservers. Currently I have:

  • A domain:
  • Access for writing the whois ns records.
  • Access for writing DNS records at the domain hosting provider.
  • A shared (hostC) hosting which cPanel writes in the nameserver of

Basically I want the following structure: -> hostA -> hostB -> hostC       -> hostC
*     -> hostC

Whats the correct way of configuring this?

By the way I have configured the following records IN A [IP_OF_hostA]     (at nameservers) IN A [IP_OF_hostB]     (at nameserver)

But now I dont know how to specify that and * are resolved by the and, and it is hard to try with the delays after editing the records.
