Hello.
I just bought a new VPS server.
Hosting provider gave me 3 default nameservers with 3 different ips:
ns1.defaultnameserver.com 100.100.100.1
ns2.defaultnameserver.com 100.100.100.2
ns3.defaultnameserver.com 100.100.100.3

VPS ip is 200.200.200.1

If I setup private nameservers which ip I will assign to them?
ex ns1.mynameserver.com
ns2.mynameserver.com
ns3.mynameserver.com

Thanks in advance

Doesn't matter, and you don't necessarily need to use all 3 IP's for nameservers.

You can still host sites on the IP's you are using as nameservers so if you did like

100.100.100.1 - server.mynameserver.com ( main shared IP )
100.100.100.2 - ns1.mynameserver.com
100.100.100.3 - ns2.mynameserver.com

In the DNS zone for mynameserver.com you would create an A Record for each host listed above.

Then you would need to register the nameservers only at your registrar. Once they are registered, and the DNS zone has been setup on the cPanel server, you can then safely use those nameservers.

Again, you can still use 100.100.100.2,3 as dedicated and/or reseller shared IP's if/when needed regardless if they are used as your nameservers.
