    We are currently evaluating the possibility of moving from our current dns management soluton to something else. We are a hosting company that has a mixture of cpanel and non-cpanel customers. We currently do not have any way for customers wanting to manage their own dns on our servers. Since we are considering the possibility of moving our management to something that allows us to have our users manage their own dns, we are considering the cPanel product. I am not sure, from the brief description that it will be a good fit for us. We need to manage both domain names that are for customers that have their sites on cpanel and also manage doman names that are not on cpanel. I have a few questions

    1. Does cPanel DNS ONLY provide an interface to manage non-cpanel domains?
    2. Does it allow us to create users that have restricted access to certain zone files?
    3. can you have non-cpanel zone files on the server?
    4. how/can you import zones from your current DNS server to cPanel DNS ONLY?

    That product is not suitable for your need. We run that on one of our servers and its a PASSIVE product and other servers controls what's stored on that.

    Simply put., you CANNOT MANAGE anything with DNS only without the other servers in the cluster telling it what to do.

    You also CANNOT EDIT, View or MODIFY anything under DNS ONLY unless you want to gp thru them manually as root under shell.

    My 2 cents.

    cPanel DNS ONLY version let you only syncronize zones with another DNS server. From WHM web interface you cannot manage zones or add a new one, nor creating users. You can only add IP addresses, establisy a connection with another DNS server and sync the zones.
