Confused about which DNS to use on WHM
Hi guys, initially i setup dns on whm as
(mydomain is a placeholder)
Now i'm thinking wouldn't it be better to use google DNS?
Or maybe i should use cloudflare dns?
Since that is what i have set on my registrar site.
Also the email forward isn't working at all, and maybe this is related to that.
I am confused too
What actually you want to set? Resolver name servers for your server ( one which is updated in /etc/resolv.conf ) or the Name Servers that should be set for each domain's DNS zone?
Case 1: Use google DNS. That is a best option
Case 2: You only can use ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com ( no IP address ), if you use the respective name servers to register your domains.
These are resolver, not nameserver. You need a resolver, whatever nameserver you use.
Your nameserver would be:
I recommend use of cloudFlare nameserver with minimum security level.

Ok so on resolver configuration i have:
Primary resolver: 22.214.171.124
Secondary resolver: 126.96.36.199
I got this number from my hosting website here
Should i change these to 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206?
Then on "Basic cPanel & WHM Setup" and in "edit DNS zone"
i have ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com
Should i change these to cloudflare's? (andy.ns.cloudflare.com
I recommend using your provider's DNS if possible - in data center's it's usually quite fast.
If you would like to do performance tests, I'd recommend using GRC's DNSBench utility.
CloudFlare DNS is not a resolver, but something to point your domains at. If that's what you're asking, then use that on your registrar's provider.
