My new web hosting company (managed VPS) suggests I use the two IPs assigned to my websites as the name servers for those same sites. (One IP is dedicated to one site, the other IP will be shared among several sites.) I've not yet taken my sites live, and I hesitate to re-point my "live" website names to my new IPs. Sorry - I'm a noob. For 15 years I've hosted my busy sites on shared servers where the hosting co assigned NS1 and NS2, and I'm trying hard to graduate and move up to VPS.
Should I do what they're suggesting? They're telling me to use the 2 IPs as NS1 and NS2 for all my domains that will be hosted on the server.
I've researched this on serverfault and elsewhere, and it's pretty clear that the advice is to use different name servers on other networks. I've asked my new host to explain this but I'd love to hear from anyone who thinks this is an acceptable practice. (I realize no one can explain my host's approach!)
Thanks for comments and advice!
