Question

Setting up domains for Real-World Web Server

Hi, I am running on Centos6.4 and will install cPanel on it. I have bought a new domain : vayes-cloud.com. And I want to access my cpanel : server01.vayes-cloud.com

So I set ns1.vayescloud.com MYIPWITHYOU and ns2.vayescloud.com MYIPWITHYOU, with domain registrar. Also NS for vayes-cloud.com is ns1.vayes-cloud.com|ns2.vayes-cloud.com.

On your system https://cloud.digitalocean.com/domains; DOMAIN : vayes-cloud.com added. $TTL 1800 @ IN SOA NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. hostmaster.vayes-cloud.com. ( 1389086433 ; last update: 2014-01-07 09:20:33 UTC 3600 ; refresh 900 ; retry 1209600 ; expire 1800 ; ttl ) IN NS NS1.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. NS NS2.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. NS NS3.DIGITALOCEAN.COM. @ IN A 95.85.7.38

PTR Records : MYIP server.vayes-cloud.com

Is it correct configuration? Is it how it supposed to be set?
