    In the WHM under Tweak settings there is an option:

    Allow Sharing Nameserver Ips

    Did this option mean that i can run 2 nameservers on 1 ip?

    Note, in some countries (e.g. the US), servers may only be allocated a single IP address and the practice of multiple nameservers on the same server and even the same IP is considered acceptable. Of course, this doesn't mean this is ideal practice.

    Thank you for explaining.
    I did not think that this setup would be acceptable practice for production.
    Why use two nameservers on the same ip on the same server?
    I don't get it. :confused:
