    I have 3 Cpanel DNS only and 5 VPSes which I resell to our clients. All 5 VPSes is using 3 Cpanel DNS Only. Now my question is: How do I prevent VPS1 could not change DNS zone which belong to VPS2 ? All clients has root access to VPSes. And I was setup remote access key for all Cpanel DNS Only with 5 VPSes.

    Thank you

    Hello :)

    DNS Clustering with cPanel is not designed to be shared between different customers. Instead, it's intended for systems where an administrator or group of administrators is managing the entire cluster. If you allow someone root access to the shared DNS server (root access key), there's no mechanism to restrict what they can do there. Thus, it's not recommended to use a DNS-Only server for separate clients.

    Thank you.
