    Hey,
    i have another question.
    Lets say I have 4 cPanel servers.
    1. primary DNS server, webserver
    2. secondary DNS server, webserver
    3. webserver
    4. webserver

    How to do IP load balancing working?
    Is possible to somehow do this ? ---> if 3. server crashes down all client websites (on this server) will normally work with other server

    That is called HA (high-availability) and LB (load-balancing), i think :)

    This is fairly simple in general to setup but does require a few steps, basically ...

    1. Setup DNS clustering between your servers (helps if a server goes down)

    2. Create the same duplicate mirrored account between multiple servers

    3. In the DNS zone for the account, set multiple entries for the IPs for
    both servers where the account is setup.

    If you do this properly , you will round robin load balance between the mirrored account(s) and your account(s) will stay online even if you bring down one server as long as the alternate server remains available.
