    Hello,

    I own my domain names to Gandi and I have a VPS running WHM & Cpanel. I host some small (and non critical) websites on this vps. Let say that the domain name of my vps is "mynewvps.com" and its IP address is 92.211.36.167.

    For now, I have two name servers addresses which are ugly and which does not include "mynewvps.com"... The first one is something like sdns20.otherdomain.com (203.240.178.140) and the second one is "vps23453.myprovider.com" (92.211.36.167). I would like to have my own name servers like "ns1.mynewvps.com" but I don't know what I could do...

    Is that possible ? Do I absolutely need TWO IP addresses ? For now, I only have one IP for my vps.

    Sorry for this basic question...

    Yes of course. You might want to review the docs at your Domain Registrar first:
    /http://wiki.gandi.net/en/dns#using_external_third_party_dns

    These docs should be helpful once you've got your domains setup proper:
