License and IP questions

    Hello,
    My first question is, Will i be able to host multiple sites using cpanel when the server only has 1 static ip?

    Yes, it's acceptable (and common behavior) to host multiple accounts on a single IP address. No special configuration is required.
    My Second question is, Do i need one cpanel license per dedicated server, or will i have to purchase a license for each customer that buys webhosting from me so they can use Cpanel/whm?

    You'd need one cPanel license for each server. There's no per-domain or per-account limitation on the license. Thank you.

    What about NameServers? Im assuming Each Dedicated Server would need its own nameservers, How do i set them up if 2 static ip's are required so that my customers domains link properly to their website?

    You can use the same IP address for both name servers, and it's acceptable for this to be the same IP address assigned to your accounts. We provide a guide on setting up the name servers at: How to Set Up Nameservers in a cPanel Environment - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation Thank you.

    Go Daddy For instance Wont accept two Nameservers with the same ip????

    Have you tested and confirmed that to be true? That seems to be contrary to the behavior I've seen in the past. Thank you.
