    I'm a first time WHM/cPanel user and I was hoping someone could please verify the usage of the 2 IP's that came with my VPS account.

    I'm trying to setup a host to manage 1 website.

    I have 2 domains registered through a registrar, lets say they are

    in WHM I setup
    hostname: pointing to x.x.x.8
    nameserver 1: pointing to x.x.x.8
    nameserver 2: pointing to x.x.x.9

    an account in WHM for pointing to x.x.x.8
    no account created for and are registered with the registrar and are both setup to use the above nameservers with the registrar

    so is this a correct configuration?,, and all using the same IP? do or should i get more IPs?

    sorry for the noob questions, just trying to learn.

    Based on what you've stated, you have everything setup properly, although you might want to ensure to create a DNS zone (if you aren't going to create a site) for in WHM > Add a DNS Zone area. I would then suggest moving the ns1, ns2 and zone file entries into the zone file instead.
