    DNS/NameServers are set from within WHM (Web Host Manager), not CPanel specifically so you would need to log-in to WHM to actually set the DNS for your domain.

    Once you login to WHM, you should see an option on the left side-menu: Basic cPanel/WHM Setup which will allow you to set the DNS. You may also need to edit the DNS Record for your domain if WHM does not do that for you.

    You would also need to create/register the NameServers with your domain registrar using the IP Address.

    You may be able to set up two nameservers on the same IP in your control panel, but your registrar will require unique IP's for each nameserver you register with them.

    google for it. oh and by the way, two nameservers witht he same ip is just dumb and defeats the whole point of having two different nameservers configured.

    do this from your domain name registrar control panel, ask them on how to make "child nameserver"

    Go to the Edit dns zone in whm and select the domain over which you need to add ns1 and ns2. Add at the bottom two new entries for NS as follows.
    Code:
    ns1 IN A IP_address
    ns2 IN A IP_address
    Now register these nameservers as child nameservers at the registrar domain control panel.
    Code:
    ns1.domain.com IP_address
    ns2.domain.com IP_address

    To Setup Nameservers In WHM go into WHM and select Edit Setup from the Server Setup menu on the left. Enter ns1.newdomain.com in the Primary Nameserver field. Hit 'Assign IP Address' (write the IP down or remember it for the next step). Then hit 'Add an A Entry for this nameserver'.

    Repeat this process for the Secondary Nameserver field. Hope this might help you.

    I think it's easy. 2 steps

    1. in WHM --> click : Nameserver IPs
    2. Go to SSH: edit /etc/nameserverips
    add:
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx=ns1.domain.com
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx=ns2.domain.com

    Done

    This is the best option I would like to recommend.
