    I have my main cPanel / WHM and secondary name server on the same box. I want to give my primary account a dedicated IP (server.mydomain.com / www.mydomain.com) - should I assign the DNS address (ns2.mydomain.com) to the dedicated IP address or to the shared IP which will be assigned to my clients?

    Hello :)

    You could use either IP address because it's acceptable to use the same IP address for multiple name servers. Some administrators may prefer to use different IP addresses on the same server in the event one of those IP addresses becomes inaccessible.

    Thank you.
