    Hi,
    I get a VPS Hosting plan today. And have to do the first set up in the WHM. I am new to it so I have several questions that I would like help on. Thanks a lot.
    I bought the VPS Hosting at hostaga.com
    My hostname is delta.hostaga.com
    I would like to know for the Primary Nameserver and Secondary Nameserver, are they supposed to be ns1.hostaga.com and ns2.hostaga.com? Or are they supposed to be ns1.myowndomain.com and ns2.myowndomain.com?
    After I hit Save, it shows the text " System has 0 free ips. "
    Any help and suggestions what to do will be greatly appreciated.
    I have received one IP address from my account information. (The plan comes with 2 private Ip's I believe)
    P.S. I apologize if this question has already been asked (I searched, but couldn't find the information I am looking for) Thanks.
    (I have opened a support ticket at my hosting provider as well. I want to look for help elsewhere to see if I can solve it without them as I have troubled them so much :( )

    I belive you should use your own nameservers.

    1. make sure you got 2 IPs pointing to your server;
    2. go to yourdomain.tld registrar and register nameservers, like ns1.yourdomain.tld and ns2.yourdomain.tld with those two IPs.
    3. enter ns1.yourdomain.tld and ns2.yourdomain.tld when setting up your WHM.

    Should work smooth :)

    Hi, where do you get the 2 IPs? (My provider will help me set up it but still I would like to know that myself as well)
    Thank you very much!
