    Hi guys,

    So currently we have a multitude of hosting panels, and with that, a set Name Servers for each of the hosting panels.

    We are looking at getting a single front end set of Name Servers. The hope is to have all domains registered with this set of Name Servers, however, they will not be authoritative for the domains. We would like the existing Name Servers for each hosting panel to be authoritative for their respective domains and have the requests simply forwarded by the front end Name Servers, to the authoritative Name Server for the hosting panel the domain is on.

    Would this be possible and would this be possible using cPanel DNS only servers?

    Hello :)

    There's no native support for that functionality, but you could manually import zones to the cPanel DNS-Only servers and modify the /etc/named.conf file to your own preferences.

    Thank you.
