    We are toying around with setting up a DNS cluster 2 different ways.

    1. Setup a master cpanel VPS with a full license to add new entries etc.. setup multiple free DNS cluster VPS in different locations to mirror the master in case it goes down.

    2. Setup a master cpanel VPS with full license and put full license on all other DNS cluster servers and push changes to each other.

    Advantage of #1 is price.

    Advantage of #2 is if one goes down you still have a GUI interface to add new entries that will be mirrored by any remaining DNS servers that are still live.

    I believe with #2 it is as simple as setting them all up with "synchronize changes" and "Setup Reverse Trust Relationship" and they just work.

    I am not as clear with option 1 and what settings to setup on each and how to know whether they are working or not.. etc... With #2 you can login to the box and see the new record created but there is not a gui for #1 on the dns only cpanel for the dns zones.

    Any suggestions or advice on the best route and how this would work?
