    i own a linux cloud server with cpanel/whm installed on it

    while setting up i set 2 name servers under basic cpanel & whm setup section wih 2 ips assigning to it and everything works fine till now

    Let's say you have a domain yourdomain.com, and you want to use private name servers ns1.yourdomain.com & ns2.yourdomain.com

    You go to the registrar of yourdomain.com and register name servers ns1.yourdomain.com & ns2.yourdomain.com

    In the DNS Zone of yourdomain.com you add A records for those name servers, so that they are pointing to the same IPs as the original name servers.

    After you have created a new account you edit it's DNS Zone and change the name server entries to match the private name servers.
