    having additional IPs for the name servers is recommended instead of using single IP for all .

    Hi,

    It is recommended to have 2 IP of different subnet, so if one IP has issues, the second IP from other subnet will still be present to server it.

    You can use ns1, ns2, ... for your nameservers that is the common way..

    Hello,

    It's acceptable to use the server's main shared IP address as the IP address for both name servers. You may receive some warnings about redundancy on websites such as IntoDNS, but the name servers will still function as expected other than the lack of redundancy.

    Thank you.
