    I read this tutorial:

    http://forums.cpanel.net/f31/tutorial-nameserver-configuration-cpanel-servers-404841.html

    This is a great tutorial, but I'm a little confused here. I'm using Cloudlinux with cPanel on Amazon AWS. I have a few questions:

    1) Am I supposed to have 2 dedicated IP's for my nameservers?
    2) If so, how do I get them?
    3) I have 1 IP that came with the domain name from Godaddy. The other is the Public IP address for the Cloudlinux server. Can I use these 2 or should I set something else up?

    Thanks

    Hello :)

    It's acceptable to use your shared IP address (the one that's accessible to the public) for your name servers. Simply use that IP address at your domain registrar when registering the name servers, and use it for the "A" records you create.

    Thank you.
