Hi. If I bought a VPS for selling web hosting. Could I then buy 2-4 cheap VPS to setup DNS cluster?
And would I be able to add multiple server into one cluster?
Letīs say i one day have 10 servers.
Could I then use ns1 - ns4 on all of those servers? Instead of each for every server?
And how does cPanel fix everything when an account is added?
And how hard is it to setup and maintenance later on?
You can use Cpanel DNS only installation for cluster DNS setup which is free from cpanel. To enable clustering, login to whm
Home >> Cluster/Remote Access >> Configure Cluster
Enable it and configure. While configuring it, it will ask remote server details and hash key. Once it is enabled, DNS role for the cluster should be set as synchronise changes, then only new account that is created in the cluster would be updated into other servers in the cluster. It is not that much hard to configure it. Will take maximum of 45 minutes to enabled it in all your 4 servers. There are cpanel docs which shows complete configurations.
The cpanel documentation is less than perfect. However, yes, to answer your question... you can get a few cheap VPS and install free cpanel DNS-Only version onto them, and then set things up so that you will have:
Then you can use those nameservers for all your domains, regardless of what cpanel server they are located on.
