I'm looking to host some websites on a Xen VPS setup I've signed up to. I've got 5 ip addresses to play with on the one server.
Should I consider transferring the DNS records to this machine or leave them with the provider I purchased the domain name from? I have the facility to modify the DNS records with that provider so could point the domain to the above VPS.
However I could setup Bind9 on the VPS and have total control, but looking into it suggests I could loose two ips for the master and slave. Although they would effectively be on the same box so be a little pointless as a redundancy.
Which brings me to the question of whether firstly having a DNS server and web server on the same box is a good idea? I'm thinking no?
Secondly is hosting DNS records on a VPS a good idea? again I'm thinking no?
