I have one client who only uses two cloud servers for over 12,000 domains. So, yes, VPS would be fine, dns requests are very lightweight.

Hello @MindServer

We do not offer an official recommendation for number of CPU cores. As GOT mentioned, DNS requests are not particularly resource-intensive, and therefore 1 CPU core may be suitable for you. However, we don't know exactly what level of activity you'll expect to see and can't guarantee that 1 core will be adequate. It might be in your best interest to choose a hosting platform that allows you to easily add additional cores to your VPS in case you require more.

Best regards
