    Hey folks

    I need some suggestions to correctly make my dns cluster scheme. Currently i have this following scheme:

    ns3.example.com is Cpanel dedicated web server (shared hosting) and ns4.example.com is dns only (ns3.example.com is synchronized to ns4.example.com ns4's role is stand alone) now i have created new cpanel vps server to host 10~20 sites there standard shared hosting with apache, ftp, mail server etc . . . ,but without a namserver on it, i'm gonna use ns3.example.com and ns4.example com as vps's namservrs like this following figure shows:

    I have read the Cpanel's guide to dns clustering and there is written following:
    so the question is why i cant link it ? does it provoke dns zone mix up? if i setup Synchronized dns cluster from vps to ns3.example.com and dns role to ns3 will be as stand alone what kind of problem can i face ? If this is not possible, nor recommended what will be the best scheme for me ?
    thanks in advance :)

    I have set-up 4 dnsOnly servers, because I do virtualization I have set them up on a VPS with 768MB and 10GB ( but depending on the amount of your zone files you might be able to do with a 512MB and 6..8GB. I have to say it works great. Not sure if it would be of any help for your specific situation, but now I am very pleased with this system, do't want to go back to 'old sitiuaton' to have everything on each server. Just 4 name servers to give to customers and less administration. Let me know if you need more help.
