    Hello :)

    It's not safe to directly upgrade from CentOS 6 to CentOS 7. Instead, it's a better idea to setup a new server with CentOS 7 and migrate the accounts over to it using the cPanel transfer tools. Or, in the case of cPanel DNS-Only, set it up as a new server in the cluster, sync the zones, and change it's IP address to match the existing name server IP address. To answer the general question, yes, you can install cPanel DNS-Only on a CentOS 7 server.

    Thank you.
