    Ok, we have now 10 cpanel servers and 2 onlydns, all configured as cluster, actual configuration is:

    1. hostname for servers are random when adding a new server to cluster
    2. we have ns1 ns2 ns3 and4.ourexclusivedns pointing to dnsonly1 and dnsonly2 servers, they are in different countries to improve perfomance
    3. 3 of our cpanel is exclusive for resellers, so everynew reseller we force them to use theirr own ns1.resellerdomain.them and they point it to directly to the reseller server they are hosted

    As we transform our cpanel servers in cluster when we had already 4 cpanels working without cluster , they had own dns but we are migrating all domains to point to our dnsonly to avoid use named inside cpanel. In this migrations some doubts appeared.


    1-Now when we add a new cpanel server, we disabled named because they are part of our cluster, is that fine ? yes/no why?
    2-We would like to clean up all servers and configure cluster in the better way to improve performance of dns response for example:

    we dont want our resellers to use our dns, because dnsonly and cpanel servers ips revers shows our name, and cpanel for resellers dont.

    How should i configure server with cpanel exclusive for reseller to avoid using our dnsonly server ?

    3-any extra suggestion ?

    Thanks in advance.
