    Arrow Shared IPs to allow custom nameservers?

    I'm not too sure on how to explain this so I'll just say what I need to do. I need to have my master resellers & resellers share 1 IP so that they can use it for their own custom name servers, instead of buying an IP for each client, charging them extra.. etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    I dont its possible to have your master resellers & resellers share 1 IP let alone for your customs to have thier own name servers. You will have to buy 1 per customer.

    Unless Im missing something obvious (been up all night), I dont think its possbile.

    It is possible, I know other hosting companies that do it.

    You just need to add A records into the DNS section for each namesserver.

    Like this

    ns1.resellersdomainname.com 14400 IN A 123.456.788
    ns2.resellersdomainname.com 14400 IN A 123.456.789

    Is that what you're after ?

    Possibly! But I'm going to try that, thank you!

    You can share an IP for DNS but its not advised. It is better to have a dedicated IP for the DNS as a reverse look-up will require that the rDNS information matches the NS information (also better for branding). Same applies with a mail server IP.
