Can someone please tell me how to set up nameservers on a vps I have been playing around for awhile now and have not been able to figure it out. I have went to my registrar and used a domain name I had and I think it is configured properly there.

I even think I added it to the server but it does not show up under the section that should list the nameservers. Can someone please help. I'm sure someone here knows what to do.

Hello :)

The functionality of the "Nameserver IPs" page is for visual purposes only. It is a report, and not a page meant to configure any aspect of DNS. It reports the nameservers used by DNS zones on the server, as well as a count of the the number of zones that use a given nameserver. The important entries on the cPanel server are the "A" records that you have added for your name servers. Thus, as long as you have registered these name servers to the matching IP addresses at the domain registrar, then no further DNS configuration is required. The "Nameserver IPs" page can include cached data, so you can safely ignore any mentions of "No IP" or a different IP on that page as it may take some time before it updates.

Note: cPanel version 11.42 introduces the "NS Record Report" option in place of the "Nameserver IP's" option.

Thank you.
