    Okay.

    basic cpanel/whm setup:

    hostname: i own a domain name that is not used for anything. i want to make this the server host name. when i enter "server.xxxxxxx.com" - WHAT NEXT? do i need to change the nameservers in the domain registrars records??

    nameservers: i enter "ns1.xxxxxxxxx.com" in the first one. WHAT NEXT? click "assign ip"? THEN WHAT? click "add A record"?

    - i do the same thing for the second one correct? then i take those 2 IP addresses to the domain registrars panel and "register a nameserver" with them?

    what happens to that actual domains DNS records? do i point them at ITS OWN NAMESERVER? ie: ns1.xxxxxx.com / ns2.xxxxxx.com?


    NOW- what about the "networking setup"

    -- do i need to go to do that "assign a namesever IP" again?? what about the "resolver setup"??

    im sorry these seem so basic.

    i just need someone to tell me ONCE the answers to those questions- because after that is set up- i point my OTHER domains to those ns's and im good to go right? (after i create account blahh) i know all the rest of the stuff- i just never understood the whole host/dns things.. thank you.
