    Hello,

    Just i wanna ask for DNSOnly cpanel product.

    Simple as well i have 2 servers, in one i want to install cpanel/whm (already installed) ex ip 1.1.1.1
    and in server 2 i want to install DNSOnly srv 2 ip 2.2.2.2 .

    so can i set up 2 nameservers on server 2 which will reach ip of server 1
    which will go like

    ns1.example.io > 2.2.2.2 > 1.1.1.1
    ns2.example.io > 2.2.2.2 > 1.1.1.1

    Ns1, ns2 on my domain provider i will put ip of server 2 where DNSONLY will be installed, and on configuration steps what if i wrote ns1.example.com > 1.1.1.1, will dns work like this?! will dns transfer all traffic from 2.2.2.2 to 1.1.1.1 ?!

    all what i want is to know if traffic will go like this.
    thanks.

    Hello,

    Traffic isn't actually redirected. Instead, the DNS is handled on the DNS-Only server if you setup the following name servers at your domain registrar:

    ns1.domain.tld > IP Address of DNS-Only Server
    ns2.domain.tld > IP Address of DNS-Only Server

    You can use the same IP address for multiple name servers. Ensure to setup the "A" records for your name servers on the hosting server via "WHM >> Edit DNS Zone". Documentation on DNS cluster configuration is available at:

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

    Thank you.
