    Hi there,

    What's the best way to implement a DNS cluster when there already is an established server?

    Our current set up is:
    domain.com
    64.xx.xx.xx (cPanel sites)
    server.domain.com 64.xx.xx.xx
    ns1.domain.com 64.xx.xx.xx
    ns2.domain.com 64.xx.xx.xx

    To my understanding, I should create a new host name, sync the cluster then change the name server addresses? Similar to my explanation below?

    domain.com
    64.xx.xx.xx (cPanel sites)
    101.xx.xx.xx (DNS)
    server.domain.com 64.xx.xx.xx
    dns.domain.com 101.xx.xx.xx
    ns1.domain.com 64.xx.xx.xx
    ns2.domain.com 64.xx.xx.xx

    then sync cluster, then perform the changes

    domain.com
    64.xx.xx.xx (cPanel sites)
    101.xx.xx.xx (DNS)
    server.domain.com 64.xx.xx.xx
    dns.domain.com 101.xx.xx.xx
    ns1.domain.com 101.xx.xx.xx
    ns2.domain.com 101.xx.xx.xx

    I do apologies, but will appreciate the support.

    Hello :)

    There's no need to change the hostname of the server. Are you adding one or two DNS-Only servers to the cluster?

    Thank you.
