    Hello,
    I would like to have an opinion on DNS Cluster setup.
    Currently i have 2 cpanelDnsOnly servers on 2 different locations and all servers are under them.
    For redudancy reasons i was thinking to make the DNS 4.
    My question is:
    What is better solution to do:
    1. make two other nameservers installing two new cpanelonly servers (have now ns1 and ns2 add also ns3 and ns4) in two other locations and have for all hosted accounts 4 nameservers spreded in 4 different locations?
    or
    2. install two other dnsonly servers and setup each existing nameserver to listen to 2 ips in different locations? So for ns1 will be 2 servers and for ns2 two other server in different locations.

    Thank you.

    Hello :)

    I suggest implementing the first option. Direct links from the hosting servers are more efficient.

    Thank you.
