It is assumed that most registrars are like mine in needing to input both the primary and secondary nameservers. (Mine even allows tertiary and quatrenary ones as well.) Here are my questions:

How many are needed?

Do they each have different IP addresses"

If there is more than one, are they to be on different servers?

Thanks.

hi, I don't know the real answer to this but my opinion is that somehwre between 2 and 6 nameservers are recommended.

yes they should be on different servers otherwise there is no point in having multiple nameservers on same server (unless you wish to just get started and use your one server to get your DNS going)
