Hello,

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

vm1.domain.com
vm2.domain.com

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:

Code:
/scripts/add_dns --domain example123.com --IP 1.1.1.1
Then, you can manually edit the zone file in /var/named if necessary.

Thank you.
