    Hi,

    I have two cPanel servers in two different cities (Server A, Server B).
    For Email I use the Email on these servers but also GoDaddy Email and another Email from another provider.

    I want to use the most of the fact that I have 2 servers.
    I'm mostly interested in having the best solution for Domain 1 scenario.
    Domain 1
    www - Server A (almost updated replica on Server B)
    MX - GoDaddy, different provider
    Domain 2
    www - Server A (almost updated replica on Server B)
    MX - Server A

    Can I use master DNS on both of them?
    My idea is to do this:

    1. On both Servers:
    Account Functions > Create a New Account

    2. DNS Functions > Edit DNS Zone, MX Entry
    Server A: MX -> GoDaddy
    Server B: MX -> GoDaddy, www -> Server A

    If Server A is down I would manually edit www in Server B to point to the local (almost good) replica of the site.

    Would this be OK?
    Can I have 2 MASTER DNSs?

    Thanks

    I made the configurations as described and checked with intoDNS and everything seemed perfect (except for reverse DNS which I don't think is that important)

    The reverse DNS does matter for MX records, but doesn't for website content. Since you are using GoDaddy for the MX records, the PTR (rDNS) records shouldn't matter much.
