Hi,
I want to ensure that if I've hosted the domains DNS at CloudFlare as a usual account not a partner account with integrated plugin, and pointed the resolvers for their DNS servers 1.1.1.1 , 1.0.0.1 is it necessary to keep Bind enabled? .. I've tried to disable it for a week and no issues faced, both websites and emails work very well, so is it a usual thing or I have to notice something?
Thank you in advance

Hello @m.eid,

It's acceptable to set the Nameserver to "Disabled" in "WHM >> Name Server Selection" if the DNS for your domains is handled on a remote server.

Keep in mind you will still see local DNS zones in the /var/named/ directory even when the nameserver is disabed. You should not manually delete these DNS zones because certain features in cPanel & WHM rely on their existence and will report errors if they are removed.

Thank you.
