    Hi Everyone,

    I recently started using Cpanel (about a year ago) and still haven't mastered it's configuration yet. Just in case this question sounds ridiculous.

    I have a couple of servers and I'll want to use the same nameservers. For example

    Server A
    ns1.allmyservers.com
    ns2.allmyservers.com

    Server B
    ns1.allmyservers.com
    ns2.allmyservers.com

    Server C
    ns1.allmyservers.com
    ns2.allmyservers.com

    Is this kind of setup possible with Cpanel? If yes, how do I go about them? Possible approach and steps will be appreciated.

    Finally, what are the pros and cons of having a setup like this.

    Thanks so much, really need help on this.

    Hi @Oluwatosin,

    Please check our documentation below:
    DNS Cluster - Version 66 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    For ns1/2, create two DNSonly servers(the license is free!). I would also suggest using 66 for the DNSonly servers for now, as there are some known issues with API tokens and DNSonly servers on 68, but I'd expect those to be resolved soon.

    In each A/B/C WHM server, add the DNSonly servers and set them to write-only. You should then be set to go.

    Let us know if you have any more questions.

    Thanks,
