    Hi.

    I am kind of new with cPanel/WHM and still in learning curve. We have a couple of servers from old projects laying around and wondering whether cPanel can be setup in a way that

    - 1 server act as master
    - 2 or more as webserver

    So when a customer signup with up by going to master server (ex: register.domain.com) and the master will choose either one of the webserver (ex: a.domain.com & b.domain.com & so on) and create the account there.

    Billing would also be handle by the master.

    Can someone point me in the right direction if cPanel would capable doing that?

    Thank you
    Sam

    Sound like you are trying to replicate something that is handled by a billing manager like WHMCS.
    I know you can setup servers in WHMCS then tell it how to add new customers. You can pick different
    servers to add your customers to based on what type of product they are ordering and such.

    cPanel does not include clustering functions like you seek, except for DNS. You can cluster DNS, but you cannot control Apache, mail or other services on remote cPanel servers from one server's WebHost Manager.

    You can actually control MySQL remotely as well, but not even the DNS only option would select one server or another for the zones. Selecting which server for the account would be manually done (or done via a script). Even though DNS only would be clustered, it isn't load balanced.
