dnsonly server for all vps cpanel customers
We would like to offer VPS servers with cpanel. My plan was, that each vps has one IP address. On this IP address the customer run a own nameserver (ns1) with cpanel.
As a 2nd nameserver I thought I could use dnsonly and set the dnsonly server to standalone for all VPS servers. On the VPS self I choosed "synchronise changes" to the dnsonly server.
I hope you know what I mean, at the end each customer would use nameservers like this:
But the problem is, that now every customer can see all dns zones of the other customer when he click on "edit dns zone" in whm.
What is wrong in my idea? Or how do you sell VPS with cpanel and offer a 2nd nameserver offserver?
PS: I posted this already in the cpanel forum, but just tought, that the solution would be to use a different product then dnsonly from cpanel.
It may defeat the purpose, but why not just setup a manual bind install and configure the zone manually for the dns only server?
Every time something is changed on the master it would be pushed to the slave.
The DNS only copy of cPanel is such a waste of resources.
Hi, thanks a lot for your answere. But this solution would require that I configure the new zone in the named.conf file everytime a customer creates a new account in his cpanel vps. Is this correct? Or can I automate this?
Well Yes and no, I am sure there is a way to change the cPanel zone creation template?
How did other VPS provider solve this problem? Or are they offer only one nameserver?
