    Hi,

    I've moved this post into a new thread as it was an entirely different topic than the post it was in previously.

    This question's answer depends on your domain registrar. Two nameservers do not have to have different IPs. If both will be on the exact same server anyway, it doesn't matter if you have one or two IPs on that server and use either the same IP or different IPs for the two nameservers. The point of multiple IPs is redundancy, which usually is not pertinent when the IPs are on the same machine.

    Thanks!

    You can use same IP for both nameservers. I believe, godaddy does not allow common IP for both nameservers. As Tristan said, the purpose behind using different IP is redundancy but if you are using same machine and named goes down, there is no use of two IP's as the server will still remain offline due to named not running.
