    We have one WHM server which is running over 100 domains. All of these domains are using name servers from their registrars. So we are not using DNS functions of WHM and we have configure DNS records via registrar's web interface. We want to enable DNS functions on our WHM to allow our clients manage their DNS records directly from cPanel. But we have only one WHM server and we want to use at least 2 independent dedicated name servers. I think best would be to get some DNS hosting service which will be compatible with WHM.

    Anyone does know about such compatible service? Or any other suggestions? We just don't want to get 2 - 3 new servers each in different location just for DNS with 'few' domains - it doesn't worth.

    Have you considered instead getting 2-3 VPS and using DNS only on them? cPanel's DNS only does not have a cost and normally DNS nameservers do not require a powerful machine. You could simply get 2-3 VPS nodes and accomplish handling your own DNS zones that way.
