    Hello,

    I have one cPanel server, that is the primary DNS server, of domains that are hosted there.
    Logical that these areas need a secondary DNS server. Today, I have this secondary DNS on a Linux server, which does not use cPanel. I need to find an automatic way to create a secondary zone in DNS, so it is created in the primary DNS (cPanel). Is it possible? Has anyone had a similar need? Is there a feature or setting that meets Bind?

    Thanks!
    Darlan

    Would it not be easier to just use cPanel DNSonly on the secondary server?

    Yes, actually, I had not realized that the license is free DNSOnly.

    Indeed, cPanel DNSOnly is free and works very well. I've been using it for years without problems. :)
