Hi, I’m trying to setup Cpanel on Digital Ocean. Currently, I’ve used one of the marketplace app to setup Cpanel. what’ I’ve done so far is:

  1. assigned a licensed CPANEL & WHM account to the IP

  2. **QUESTION: **Purchased 1 floating IP as directed (don’t I need two floating IPs for NS1 & NS2 ?

  3. QUESTION: How do I then point the domain name the server and get everything moving?

Hello @Gaventure,

You can use the same floating IP address for both NS1 and NS2. A knowledge base article on how to setup name servers when using cPanel & WHM (including information on how to point the domain to the server from the domain registrar) is available on the link below:

https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/CKB/How+to+Set+Up+Nameservers+in+a+cPanel+Environment

I’m here to help if you encounter any difficulties with the name server setup, or if you have any questions at all about cPanel & WHM.

Thanks!
