Hi guys,

Newbie here :)

I have a single server with 700 accounts, two name servers. I have a new second server with no accounts, and would like to share the accounts between the two, so both servers would have 350 accounts each. I've noticed that many host's have their reseller accounts setup like that with some accounts on different ip addresses (not dedicated ips).

I'm sure there must be some kind of documentation about it, but I can't find anything. I tried searching for clustering but dns clusters and nameservers pop up which I don't think it is.

Any help please? Thanks, much appreciated!

Thanks alot Infopro! Much appreciated! After reading that, I noticed that I have two nameservers ns1.muniserver.com and ns2.muniserver.com but despite I've used them for ages, they aren't enabled and set in DNS clustering. Did I originally set this up wrong or something? Do I need both my name servers in there before I can add my additional server? Thanks again for all of your prompt assistance!

Hello :)

Clustering is not enabled by default. If you plan to setup a DNS cluster and keep the name servers the same for all domain names, you should consider purchasing a third server, installing cPanel DNS-Only, and then updating the name server IP addresses at the domain registrar for your domain name. Otherwise, the alternative is to setup new name servers for the new server (e.g. NS3/NS4) and simply change the name servers for the domain names at their respective registrars.

Thank you.
