    Hello

    If i create a vps using openvz and use a new ip for that vps e.x:
    123.456.789.0

    What nameservers i must use to point my domain to that vps?

    NS1 <--- 123.456.789.0
    NS2 <--- ?

    All the above using cpanel in the vps.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You can use any pair of name servers [ns1.domain.com & ns2.domain.com] for your domain(s) to make them point to the newly created VPS.

    If you have a single IP:
    NS1 <--- 123.456.789.0
    NS2 <--- 123.456.789.0

    If you have more than a single IP [recommended]:
    NS1 <--- xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    NS2 <--- yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy

    Make sure to setup them correctly at your domain registrar level. :)

    Yes, it isnt recommended, but you can still use one single IP address for both the name servers :)
