I am a highly motivated, results-driven IT professional with 10 years experience, a systems engineer who enjoys working on large-scale systems and challenging problems. I have experience with large number of servers (10.000+) connected via WAN and LAN, which makes it possible for cloud providers to deliver reliable services to customers

My current role is: systems engineer of the team which runs the websites.

On the top of usual systems engineering tasks, I like to develop softwares, my main language is Ruby (and I use Ruby on Rails of course :) ) but I can read and understand (and fix) Perl and Python, however it is not my favorite. I started to learn Erlang recently, which helps me understand the challenges what software developers face with distributed systems.

comment Wildcard DNS with BIND
So if you have 2 zones like somedomain.com and nsdomain.com you have to setup the nsdomain related info in the proper zone. Short answer is yes, you have to set up another zone.

If you want the user to use i1 and i2 just construct the html and use URLs from both of them.

comment mysql is not using multiple cpus
Since you are using Myisam table type, InnoDB's concurrency has no effect to your mysql server. I am not aware of any configuration or setting which makes myisam scale for multicore systems.
