    Hello.

    I have read cPanel DNS Only instructions but I have a doubt.

    Actually, I have TWO dedicated server running cPanel and ONE separated VPS running apache + dns (no cpanel)

    I know I need two servers to install DNS Only so I go to rent a new VPS (nameserver #1) and reutilize my VPS as nameserver #2.

    My question is.... Can I install DNS Only on VPS which is running as apache already? Or do I need an empty VPS with no apache, no mysql, etc...? i.e. DNS only + webserver

    Thanks.

    It's correct that you should install cPanel DNS-Only on a fresh installation of the OS.

    Thank you.
