    I am conisidering CPanel but it seems geared toward having all services on the same box. Is it possible to run an expandable cluster like so:

    Cpanel Web 1
    Cpanel Web 2
    Cpanel Web 3
    Cpanel Mail 1/Dns 1
    Cpanel Mail 2/Dns 2
    Cpanel MySql 1
    Cpanel MySql 2

    Or is Cpanel just not geared for this type of set-up? Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, I'm using H-Sphere now but I am trying to move on but I cannot find anything in the docs that says how to have a seperate email or mysql server with Cpanel. I am just trying to get a grasp on how this works in an overall infrastructure.

    Do most people just keep everything on one server, and then add new servers as needed? I guess I just can't find any high level docs describing how Cpanel works in an enviroment with more than one server.
