    Hi
    Im looking to leave my current provider, have most of the equipment but only 1 IP.

    This is going to be a problem for domains, is there anyway round it?

    Go on, have a guess
    You can run a server perfectly well with multiple clients on a single IP address. The only times you're going to run into problems is if more than one domain wants to run SSL (it can only be run on a single IP address) and if you want to run a primary and secondary nameserver on the same server (which you should never ever do anyway).

    Thanks for the reply
    Please could you email me a repsonse to this Q to jamie_hopewell@yahoo.co.uk as i havent got an internet connection till next month :mad:

    Anyway, how do i sort the domains then?
    Im used to using the ns1 and ns2 with 2 IPs but like i said i only have 1.

    This was the main reason for this post!


    Thanks

    When you host websites you should always have ns1 on one server and ns2 on a different one, preferrably in a completely different datacentre. If yo don't you can run into various problems should the server be done, in particular lost email that would normally be queued. With a single IP address you simply configure everything to use it, there's nothing special that needs doing. You could then use a third-party DNS provider for your secondary DNS needs, such as http://www.granitecanyon.com/
