    Thank you Michael, i do however find the examples brilliant for one server however not necessarily useful with multiple web servers as the one example including two web servers has a warning that it is not recommended...

    You should configure the second web server the same way you configure the first web server. There's no need to connect to the two web servers to each other.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Michael,

    If our setup is as follows, what would you suggest

    DNS 1 - DNSOnly
    DNS 2 - DNSOnly
    DNS 3 - DNSOnly
    DNS 4 - DNSOnly
    Web1/DNS 5 - WHM
    Web 2/DNS 6 - WHM

    Hello,

    I'd advise leaving your hosting servers for hosting websites only rather than using them as additional DNS servers.

    Thank you.
