    Do i need to setup DNS server (name servers) before installing cPanel or can i do that later with cPanel?

    And what do i need to setup DNS server/name servers ?

    EDIT:

    You can setup DNS later.

    You will now need to create the name servers at the place you registered your domain from to point to your new server. Every registrar has a different process for creating private name servers.

    OK, and do i have to setup anything manually or can i configure/install DNS things via WHM? Does it require 2 IP's or is 1 enough?

    Yes its good if you set name servers for your server before creating any new accounts on your server it will avoid any downtime for your domains.

    You can set the name server from your WHM

    The main thing you must remember while setting new name server for your server n you need to register the name servers from your domain name registrar end.

    For example if you set name servers for your server is as follows.

    ns1.example.com ip 91.100.100.188
    ns2.example.com ip 91.100.100.189

    Then you should be register the above name servers at your domain name registrar end.The domain name registrar is a company where you have buy a domain example.com.The name server will take 24 to 72 hours to resolved worldwide with your server.

    I think you are telling me how to add name servers to the cpanel. But i want to know how to create it. Lets say i have 2 dedicated servers wtih fresh cPanel installation. One will be ns1 and second ns2. How do i do that? Of course there will be clients on both server.

    Every server has one IP. Please detailed guide.
