    Hi All,
    Question about name server 'a' records.

    I'm hosting a WHM server with private nameservers which are clustered.

    My question is: is it sensible to host a cPanel account within the WHM server, and within that the name server 'A' records? Or should the name server 'A' records zone be hosted elsewhere in case the WHM server goes down they can still be reached.

    Thanks, K

    If the WHM server goes down it does not help at all if the name servers are still working... the server is till down and unreachable.
