    If I set up a DNS only server and do the clustering thing I imagine the DNS server it's self wouldn't have to be a ball of fire or am I missing a point?

    Is there any "rule of thumb" on how many sites or how busy the sites have to be per how hot the DNS server has to be?

    I setup a DNS only server too and it's a bugged version of cpanel.

    Bugged because have some errors:

    Main link is listing all icons of a normal cpanel installation, but they don't work;
    On startup, some services is failing:

    cPanel Services Log
    cPanel Services Dav

    There are other errors that I discovery.

    The /scripts directory have many files that don't work and just don't is required to be installed, like files to configure httpd, etc.

    It's necessary to fix all that small points... :D

    Please clarify "ball of fire" and "hot" so we may fully understand the intended question. If referring to hardware options it is very flexible; a dedicated DNS/name server may not always require the best performing system, but while deciding system specifications please take into account the expected load and capaity that you wish to attain.


    Any suspected issues should be reported via a support request; please ensure to submit a ticket so the issues and circumstances may be verified and thoroughly investigated; when available, please PM me referencing your post and new ticket ID number so I may follow-up internally.

    Thank you for the reply, I didn't want to get too specific because I know you can't guarantee performance since there is so many hardware variables and mistakes some people can make when loading the OS.
