    Hi All,

    Here’s the scoop,

    When I first got my dedicated server from my hosting service I was migrating from another server the name servers were ns1.Joedumb.net and ns2.Joedumb.net (also had ns3, ns4) all pointing to 2 different IP’s with the old provider.

    When I got the new server I started with ns1.Joedumb.net and ns2.Joedumb.net and had the server DNS set like below:


    <domain>. NS ns1.Joedumb.net.
    <domain>. NS ns2.Joedumb.net.
    <domain>. A <ip>
    <domain>. MX (10) mail.<domain>.
    <ip> / 24 PTR <domain>.
    ftp.<domain>. CNAME <domain>.
    mail.<domain>. A <ip>
    ns.<domain>. A <ip>
    webmail.<domain> A <ip>

    Joedumb.net is setup like the following:
    72.22.141.70 / 24 PTR Joedumb.net.
    ftp.Joedumb.net. CNAME Joedumb.net.
    mail.Joedumb.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns1.Joedumb.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns2.Joedumb.net. A 192.22.142.134
    Joedumb.net. NS ns1.Joedumb.net.
    Joedumb.net. NS ns2.Joedumb.net.
    Joedumb.net. A 192.22.141.70
    Joedumb.net. MX (10) mail.Joedumb.net.
    webmail.Joedumb.net. A 192.22.141.70
    www.Joedumb.net. CNAME Joedumb.net.

    Once I migrated all of the domains over that were pointing to the JimOld.net old server I just changed the DNS at my registrar to point ns1, ns2, ns3, ns4.JimOld.net to the same 2 IP’s of Joedumb.net and set up JimOld.net as shown below:

    72.22.141.70 / 24 PTR JimOld.net.
    JimOld.net. NS ns1.Joedumb.net.
    JimOld.net. NS ns2.Joedumb.net.
    JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    JimOld.net. MX (10) mail.JimOld.net.
    ftp.JimOld.net. CNAME JimOld.net.
    mail.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns1.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns2.JimOld.net. A 192.22.142.134
    ns3.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns4.JimOld.net. A 192.22.142.134
    ns5.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns6.JimOld.net. A 192.22.142.134
    webmail.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    www.JimOld.net. CNAME JimOld.net.

    Now that everything is migrated I want to assign an IP to JimOld.net as shown below:

    Here’s my quandary. Now the domain JimOld.net is a shared IP with the name servers. I want to put it on it’s own IP so I can issue an SSL (which I already have). I’m getting another ip for this let say 192.22.141.143 for this domain. What do I need to do to make this work properly. Can I change it as follows and will it work properly?

    72.22.141.143 / 24 PTR JimOld.net.
    JimOld.net. NS ns1.Joedumb.net.
    JimOld.net. NS ns2.Joedumb.net.
    JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.143
    JimOld.net. MX (10) mail.JimOld.net.
    ftp.JimOld.net. CNAME JimOld.net.
    mail.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns1.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns2.JimOld.net. A 192.22.142.134
    ns3.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns4.JimOld.net. A 192.22.142.134
    ns5.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70
    ns6.JimOld.net. A 192.22.142.134
    webmail.JimOld.net. A 192.22.141.70


    Thanks,

    Steve
