    I am planning to get 2 servers to host master and slave name servers. I was planning to install full version cPanel on both and disable non-dns services on both. This way, I will have flexibility of enabling those services in future if required.

    But I am not sure if this is a good move. Should I go ahead with this setup or I should simply install the DNSONLY version of cPanel?

    My server charges include cPanel without any additional fees, so I won't save the cost if I chose DNSONLY version.

    Thanks
    Deep

    If you don't need it, why pay for 2 licenses?

    @Infopro - I am not paying any extra amount for cPanel installation. My question is, does it make any difference if I use full cPanel installation as DNSONLY server? Or it's better to use DNSONLY version of the cPanel only.
