    Hello

    I am new to dns clustering.I need the following setup

    Suppose we have xyz.com where we need to have following name-servers
    ns4.xyz.com
    ns5.xyz.com
    ns6.xyz.com
    which will be hosted in different locations for redundancy

    I need to use them as nameservers in multiple shared hosting servers as name servers.How to do that ?

    Yes, that's supported. You could also use NS5/NS6 with the same IP address on a single DNS-Only server.

    Thank you.

    The documents referenced in my earlier post offer step-by-step instructions on configuring the cluster. Could you let us know which part you are having trouble configuring?

    Thank you.

    I am trouble configuring the nameserver standalone itself with cpanel dnsonly setup with single IP per vps with single nameserver.

    Cluster issue I have understood.

    I believe you are confusing the cluster configuration with the basic configuration option in Web Host Manager. The image you attached shows the configuration screen for name servers. It's only configuring which name servers are assigned to the DNS zones of new accounts on this server. Simply enter the name servers you want added to the DNS Zones for domain names created on that server.

    Thank you.
