    1 domain on 2 servers?

    My first server is a VPS where I host my websites, however I just purchased a second dedicated server, but used the same domain on it. The dedicated server is going to be used to as a proxy network, which is unrelated to my first VPS.

    However, can I set up a proxy server with the same domain? Right now I have ns1 and ns2 directed to my VPS, while ns3 and ns4 directed to my dedicated server. I have a feeling this isn't right, should I just get a new domain?

    If you go to purchase new domain then it would be better idea. However some webmasters are using 2 server for their one domain name.

    check out round-robin dns options. You could also use a subdomain for each server.

    Its called DNS Round Robin or Load Balancing, it is effective and works pretty well. There are some caveats about TTLs, but people have been using the methods for a couple of decades.

    I think if you use a subdomain for each server will be good enough

    No point using round robin DNS if the VPS and dedicated servers are unrelated.............

    If other people are going to be using the proxy then it would be easier to get a whole new domain name

    There is no reason why both VPS/Server can't use the same nameservers.
