    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.
