    Currently my setup is having one server with 3 ips, (shared and 2 name servers) + one dedicated for one domain.

    Now I have been thinking about separating these servers and I could do 2 name servers, each having one IP + hosting server with one IP. Like 2 DNS only + cpanel server.
    Issue is provider gives only one IP per VPS.

    How to do the actual installation? First DNS only servers to get DNS up ? Then the cPanel server and use the DNS only server IPs when setting up cPanel ?

    Also another question rise: I have to start using SNI because no more dedicated IP for the one domain ? This causes anything I should be aware of ?
    Like I don't wan't to hosted accounts https to redirect to root https just because one IP ?

    You can find a DNS cluster guide at:

    Guide to DNS Cluster Configurations - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    You'd simply install cPanel DNS-Only on two new servers. You can use the main IP address of each DNS-Only server when setting up the name server IP addresses at the registrar.

    Here's the most common issue encountered through the use of SNI:

    Thank you.
