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:

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.
