Hello.
I have two new servers with whm each.
I also have the possibility to use 4 public IP.
My question is: Shall i use two IP for each Hostname and the other two IP for each name server? Or is it better to use the same ip for a host and a name server, and a second ip for the other host and the other name server?


Option1:
srv01.myhost.com IP1
srv02.myhost.com IP2

ns1.myhost.com IP3
ns2.myhost.com IP4

Option2:
srv01.myhost.com IP1
srv02.myhost.com IP2

ns1.myhost.com IP1
ns2.myhost.com IP2

A last question, is it important to add an A entry for the hostnames and the name servers?

Hello,

I recommend using this option, as otherwise you'd have to setup DNS clustering between two servers used for hosting (clustering isn't recommended in a two-way sync setup).

A last question, is it important to add an A entry for the hostnames and the name servers?
Yes.

Thanks!
