    Is it possible for me to compile my own copy of Bind, I want to patch it with GeoDNS.

    How can I do this without breaking cPanel's communication with Bind?

    And without loosing all my current DNS records.

    Thanks,
    Shane.

    Go on, have a guess
    You can compile bind yourself if you really want to. So long as you maintain the standard bind named.conf and zone file structure in /var/named/ and the use of rndc there should be no problems. If you break any of that it won't integrate with cPanel.
