    Hi all,

    I want to ask "if we can use cPanel with external dns server" but the case is not simple because we want our customers (resellers for instance) to be able to create sites from cPanel however we want required dns records to be saved at external server. Can cPanel has a feature like this ? Or should we think for a workaround ?

    Thank you very much

    Hello :)

    It's only possible to have DNS records synchronized to an external server if the external server uses cPanel or cPanel DNS-Only and you have DNS Clustering enabled. This is documented at:

    Guide to DNS Clustering

    Thank you.
