    Need to get something straight in my mind. I ordered a cloud server and I just need to know if this is the correct way of setting things up. It comes with WHM and CPanel

    I have been given three ip addresses

    Step 1)
    Using WHM I have set the hostname up cloud.mydomainco.uk and that has been assigned an IP address

    Step 2)
    I presume I assign the other two ips addresses to ns1 and ns2 and add A records using WHM
    ns1.mydomain.co.uk
    ns2.mydomain.co.uk

    Step 3) With that done, in Cpanel I create a new account for mydomain.co.uk

    Step 4)
    After this I goto my domain name registrars at 123reg where mydomain.co.uk is registered
    I set the nameserver and IP address to those that where set up in step 2

    ns1.mydomain.co.uk {IP Address}
    ns2.mydomain.co.uk {IP Address}

    Steo 5) I wait, I can then access the webspace at www.mydomain.co.uk

    Step 6) Any other accounts I set up through Cpanel, I just need to change the nameserver details on the domain at my registrars to ns1.mydomain.co.uk and ns2.mydomain.co.uk

    Thank you for confirming. I have always set domains up by just entering the DNS and not set up nameservers before.
