To better answer your question, you first need to decided where you want to manage your DNS records, i.e. through cPanel or via the (free) DigitalOcean DNS Manager?
Through cPanel but want o use Vanity private nameserver
I do not want to manually add DNS record every time I create a new account in my cPanel.
Then you need to create "Branded" nameservers, per this article: How To Create Vanity or Branded Nameservers with DigitalOcean Cloud Servers.

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.

What setting should I set in WHM? I have done the Branded Nameservers method, but is not working. IN A <– should be public IP or internal IP?
