Hi, I have setup Vanity private nameserver using DO nameserver IPs. And I have installed cPanel to create / manage websites on my VPS.

After creating a new cPanel account using my private nameserver, Do I still need to add domain in: DO control panel >> DNS >> Add Domain

What setting should I set in WHM? I have done the Branded Nameservers method, but is not working.

ns1.yourdomain.com. IN A 1.2.3.4 <-- should be public IP or internal IP?

Correct!

Ohhh… that means if I use Vanity private nameserver, I will have to manually add domain in DNS setting of DO control panel for every domain hosted on my VPS. <br> <br>
