cPanel nameservers are the DNS servers used to register your cPanel account. You can find the cPanel nameservers by hovering over the link shown in the image below:
What are the cPanel nameservers?
Before you can use a domain on your cPanel server, it must be pointed to the server with its cPanel nameservers. The domains ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com are the default nameservers that come with every cPanel account.
You can also point your domain to a specific IP address if you prefer to not use these nameservers. This can be done by going into WHM (Web Host Manager) -> Nameservers -> Add New Nameserver/Remove Existing Nameserver in the left sidebar.
Pointing your domain to a cPanel nameserver.
The first step to getting your cPanel nameserver up and running is to point your domain to the IP address of your new server.
To do this, log into your account with your hosting provider and navigate to Domains > Manage.
From there, find the domain you want to point at cPanel and click on Edit DNS Records. On this page, look for a section labeled Nameservers: enter an IP address for each of them (you can use any number between 1-255). Make sure you enter the numbers in decimal format without any spaces or commas: for example if you wanted to use 188.8.131.52 as one of your nameservers then you would enter 1283059100 as their respective values here. If all goes well then after submitting this information there should be no error message displayed when viewing the page again!
Registering your own name servers in WHM.
Now that you’ve registered your own name servers, it’s time to actually set them up. You can find the IP address of your server in WHM under Server Information > Manage Account.
If you want to find out what the IP address is for any domain, visit a website like WhoisHostname or Domaintools. Enter the domain and click on “Details.”
cPanel nameservers are either the domains ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com or a specific IP address.
The cPanel nameservers are either the domains ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com or a specific IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) that your hosting provider assigns to you, which you can confirm by logging into your cPanel account and looking at the DNS Settings page under Domains > Domain Name Servers menu option.
To change these nameservers, you will have to contact your hosting provider because they control them and will assign them to you when they set up your account on their server network.
When you register your own cPanel nameservers, it is a good idea to use them for all of your domains. This will make it easier for you to manage all of your domains from one place and also help reduce the amount of time spent on DNS management. If you don’t want to do this yourself, there are many hosting providers that offer this service as part of their package which can save you time and money in the long run!
