My question is.. can a server be it's own DNS server?

Im pretty sure that it can, but can it do it with only 1 IP address?  If so, how?  If not, what is needed.

I currently have one server (Linux Box) that I am using as a web server and as a DNS server for a second Linux Box.  But I want to have my server use itself for DNS so that I don't need to pay for the other server that I am renting.

I am using Redhat 7.3.

If it is not possible, what is a good solution?
