    Hello,

    Does anybody with practical experience of using cPanel's DNS clustering feature know if this setup can be supported?

    DNS SERVER <----------------> DNS SERVER
    / | \
    / | \
    / | \
    / | \
    WS WS WS

    Apart from anything else, I've never been much good at ASCII art. In a nutshell, would two DNS servers be able to update each other of new DNS records that are passed to them from a cluster of web servers (WS in the above example)? There is not a requirement for the web servers to hold other web servers' DNS records, just its own.

    Hope this makes sense :)

    Thanks.

    Edit: vBulletin parsed my 'art' of spaces.

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, you can do that, so long as all the web servers are running cPanel and the DNS servers are running either cPanel or the free DNSOnly cPanel.
