    I am looking to setup my own dns server. Since I will be mostly hosting my servers using cpanel, Cpanel DNS only seems suitable for me.

    But not much information can be had from cpanel website about this FREE product.

    Can I know if it's possible to use cpanel dns only for other DNS usage besides only serving cpanel products? Like for eg, I might have some dedicated server users who didn't use cpanel but would like to use my DNS service for their domains.

    What are the specs for cpanel dns only to run? Will an old p3-800mhz be good enough?

    cPanel DNS-Only is only intended for use with other cPanel/WHM servers. However, others have managed to use cPanel DNS Only with other systems. Such setups are unsupported but perhaps you may be able to find some posts on these forums about how others have done that.

    An old p3 800mhz machine should be just fine. The minimum requirements is a 266mhz processor.
