    Question - I have a dedicated server with 22 domains and extra IPs available. So far every domain uses ns1.domain and ns2.domain.

    Naturally dnsreports complains that the nameservers are on the same ip, apart from that its fine.

    Is there anyway to share DNS between the domains on different IPs?

    I am interested if there is a simple way to get ns1 and ns2 onto different IPs?

    I too would like to know this.

    If you don't know how. talk to your domain host. You need to delegate your server domain:

    ns1.domain.com - 123.456.789.101
    ns2.domain.com - 234.567.891.011

    Then make the obvious DNS mods at the server. If you need help PM me.

    What I am referring to as I am sure redcheck is how do you do this in plesk?

    My domain host is me, its a dedicated server. I got several IPs but in plesk a domain is assigned a single IP.

    So how do you do it?

    Yes, How do you set up server wide DNS with two IP's or one for that matter.
    For example, my customers point their domain names to my name servers... How do i set up those name servers?
    I have created an A record for my name servers and an NS record and I cnt get them to work. I am new to Plesk as I am switching from Cpanel.

    I have this for the Server DNS setting

    <domain>. NS ns2.redcheckhosting.net.
    <domain>. NS ns3.redcheckhosting.net.
    <domain>. A <ip>
    <domain>. MX (10) mail.<domain>.
    <domain>. TXT v=spf1 a mx a:<domain>. ~all
    <ip> / 24 PTR <domain>.
    ftp.<domain>. CNAME <domain>.
    mail.<domain>. A <ip>
    ns.<domain>. A <ip>
    webmail.<domain>. A <ip>

    This is for the domain that I have set up as the name server / 16 PTR redcheckhosting.net.
    ftp.redcheckhosting.net. CNAME redcheckhosting.net.
    lists.redcheckhosting.net. CNAME redcheckhosting.net.
    mail.redcheckhosting.net. A
    ns.redcheckhosting.net. A
    ns2.redcheckhosting.net. A
    ns3.redcheckhosting.net. A
    redcheckhosting.net. NS ns3.redcheckhosting.net.
    redcheckhosting.net. NS ns2.redcheckhosting.net.
    redcheckhosting.net. A
    redcheckhosting.net. MX (10) mail.redcheckhosting.net.
    redcheckhosting.net. TXT v=spf1 a mx a:redcheckhosting.net. ~all
    webmail.redcheckhosting.net. A
    www.redcheckhosting.net. CNAME redcheckhosting.net.

    I have this for a domain set up as a user... / 24 PTR gwenandscott.com.
    ftp.gwenandscott.com. CNAME gwenandscott.com.
    gwenandscott.com. NS ns2.redcheckhosting.net.
    gwenandscott.com. NS ns3.redcheckhosting.net.
    gwenandscott.com. A
    gwenandscott.com. MX (10) mail.gwenandscott.com.
    gwenandscott.com. TXT v=spf1 a mx a:gwenandscott.com. ~all
    lists.gwenandscott.com. CNAME gwenandscott.com.
    mail.gwenandscott.com. A
    ns.gwenandscott.com. A
