Shared IP address for nobody

When you have more than one IP's bind to your server, you might see under your cPanel/WHM more than one shared IP's even though you might have not configured any resellers (some like to configure shared IP's for resellers).
Actually it might look something like this:

Shared IP address for root. IP #
Shared IP address for nobody IP#

Truth is we only need one share IP for root, in addition in /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf you might have the following lines:

<VirtualHost MY-IP>
ServerName MY-IP
ServerAdmin root@localhost
DocumentRoot /dev/null
ScriptAliasMatch .* /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/domainredirect.cgi
What's the cause for this ? The answer hears to Domain Forwarding that you have enabled and there's an easy way to solve it.
Navigate to WHM -> DNS Functions -> Setup/Edit Domain Forwarding and set it to disable.
Rebuild/Restart Apache and your are ready !!
