Hello,

I recently purchased a cPanel licence and a new domain, but I'm having trouble setting up my name servers. On cPanel I have entered the correct IPs and domains that I would like them to be, but my domain isn't linked to cPanel. How would I do this? I have tested if it works by going on another domain and seeing if the name servers work but they don't.

Thanks,
Sam.

Have you registered /created these new nameservers at your domain registrar? you must register them there first with the correct IPs pointing to your server.
Example:
ns1.your_domain.com IP address 1.2.3.4 < an Ip that exists on your server
ns1.your_domain.com IP address 5.6.7.8< another Ip that exists on your server( preferably on another server)
Make sure to create an A record for these nameservers in WHM

Hello :)

Make sure that you set your name servers at the registrar, after creating them at the registrar. A website such as "IntoDNS" might be helpful.

Thank you.
