VPS 2rd IP address

Hi All:

I am in the process of configuring cPanel accounts within WHM. BTW, this is my first VPS. So lots to learn :)

My package is the SSD-1. It is provisioned with 2 IP addresses. So here are my questions:

- What is the purpose of a 2rd IP address?
-- Is the second IP address used when setting / changing the DNS records at my Registrar? For example:
ns1.domain.com .... 1st IP address
ns2.domain.com .... 2rd IP address

For the purchase of the SSD-1, I used an existing Domain which is already hosted with another provider. Once I've deployed and tested the planned sites on the KH SSD-1, I will update the DNS at my registrar.

Although the DNS for that domain is the same name at the other hosting provider and with KH, I assume the change of IP addresses will point the domain to KH server because the IP addresses are different? Correct?

Thanks

The sky's the limit. Dedicated IP for another domain, but if nothing else it will serve as your second Nameserver IP.

Correct.
