    Just set up a DNS only VPS to handle a few hostnames for VMs on a specific domain name.

    I want them to resolve to an IP.

    But surprise there is no DNS zone editor neither add a DNS entry option within the DNS only which i find weird giving the purpose of it ;).

    I don't want these zones to be handled within a cPanel Licensed server i want them to be separated.

    I have thousands of DNS A entries and i want them to be handled with the DNS only server.

    1) Shall I swap to powerDNS ?
    2) How to bulk add them ?

    Hello :)

    It's okay to add in your own DNS zones to a cPanel DNS-Only server. You can develop a script that utilizes the following command to create new DNS Zones:

    /scripts/add_dns --domain --IP
    Then, you can manually edit the zone file in /var/named if necessary.

    Thank you.
