DNS-Only cluster. Use BIND or PowerDNS?

    Hello,

    We are currently using BIND on our dns cluster of four DNS-Only nameservers, and also BIND on all our cpanel shared hosting servers that connect to the DNS cluster nameservers.

    Should we switch to PowerDNS? Is this possible? What are the "gotchas"? Do we need to re-setup everything on the four DNS-Only nameservers? Is there any necessary additional configuration changes to make changes on the cpanel shared hosting servers? Do we need to resync anything after making changes, etc?

    Thanks.

    Hello,


    You can use either name server for DNS clusters, the only caveat is that that DNSSEC (which PowerDNS supports but not BIND) is not supported with DNS Clusters. Since you're using BIND now the likelihood that you have any pre-existing DNSSEC configurations in place is slim. You might want to check out our documentation on clustering as well:

    DNS Cluster - Version 76 Documentation - cPanel Documentation
    Guide to DNS Cluster Configurations - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    Thanks!
