    Hello,

    I am going to be setting up a VPS node with KVM.

    Here's my concern:

    My DNS will not be on the node itself. I have three CPanel dnsonly VPSs with ns1-ns3.

    So the node will need to cluster with those right? In order to be found?

    So how do I do this? I don't think you install CPanel on the node itself, since it'd be a waste of a license. But how do I cluster with my nameservers so that I can reach the node, such as to control the VPSs and such? Otherwise how will it resolve?

    I hope this makes sense.

    This is somewhat getting into network design, i.e in how your node will be accessible (or not) from the wider internet is a concern from various pov including security. There is no need to run a dns server (cPanel) directly on the host node and this is in fact probably highly inadvisable, you can simply point a dns record to it from your dns infrastructure if you want one for the purposes of more easily accessing it's IP for management.

    Hello :)

    DNS is not required on your VPS node because it only has to be accessed over it's IP address. If you want to access it via a hostname, you can add a DNS entry for it on one of the individual cPanel servers. The DNS for the individual cPanel servers can be handled by the DNS-Only servers that you configure after you enable clustering:

    cPanel - Configure Cluster

    Thank you.
