    Hi All

    Quick question about DNS.

    I run a single cpanel server on a VPS for a number of domains.

    I would like to be able to offer multiple DNS servers for resilience, how do other people do this when only running a single server ? Manually create replicas of the zones on registrar servers or ?

    Thanks :)

    NikC

    Hello :)

    Many users setup another server for use as a dedicated physical nameserver in order to provide DNS redundancy. There may be custom setups and solutions provided by registrars or other DNS providers, however, cPanel typically advises customers to consider the use of cPanel DNS-Only. More information on cPanel DNS-Only can be found at:

    cPanel DNS-Only

    "cPanel DNS ONLY is software that allows you to run a dedicated physical nameserver, which you can then link to your web server(s) using WHM's DNS Clustering feature. This means that any change to your web server's DNS information will automatically be sent to the DNS ONLY server, eliminating the need to run nameserver software on your web server."

    Thank you.
