[wp-hackers] New Codex page on WordPress Optimization

I've never heard that hosting DNS on the same server is a bonus. We run 
each service on a separate IP even if it's on the same server, to allow 
for easier separation later.

I know that all the big sites run DNS separately from their web servers, 
it just wouldn't be practical to host DNS on the same box as the 
application. So based on that, I'm pretty confident that there's no 
downside to hosting DNS separately.

I'm interested to hear more on the subject though. Can your web host 
provide any links to support their recommendation? I searched for "dns 
rating" but I couldn't find anything relevant. Could you post any links 
to DNS rating sites?

Cheers - Callum.
