Default Dedicated Server with more than 1 ip to be used as Name Server as well


My Question is about using One Dedicated Server with four IPS( or more ) out of which 2 are going to be used as Name Servers without any virtualization (OpenVz or any other)but to adjust vi /etc/network/interfaces & remaining 2 ips are used as one Web server and mail servers or sub-domain.

I want to set up this server as

Web Server+Mail+DB - One Nos but with 2 ips, One as website & remaining as virtual ips

DNS Servers as - 2 Nos ( ns1.mydomain.com & ns2.mydomain.com)

Is it advice able to make vi /etc/network/interfaces as under;

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

auto eth0:1


for web server & mail server

then under DNS zone set Name Servers & other website records to be Set up

My reference guides are;


Please advice

If you have just one server and want to use that as nameserver, then just follow the perfect server guide and assign two ip addresses to eth0 (one is used as ns1 and the oster as ns2). The dns guide is not required as it is for multiserver setups.
