2 Hosting Servers, 1 DNS Manager

I'm trying to find out if what I want to do is viable, if I should do it and how.

Basically, I have 2 servers, 1 with cPanel and another with CentOS Web Panel and I want to be the cPanel server handling with the DNS of both servers. Both use BIND.

Should this be done? If anyone could give a hint how to automate the import of the DNS zones from CWP I'll appreciate.


  • If sticking to cPanel API's would need to write a script. If doing raw bind edits, use webmin and its RPC API.

    If needed I have a few empty servers that I can use only to manage DNS. The main goal is to keep all DNS together.

  • It's really easier if you just use another server, install cPanel DNS Only, and cluster it with your original cPanel server. Add/edit/remove zones from your original cPanel server and it will be synced to DNS Only server automatically.

  • @DalComp that I already have, but I want to have another server for hosting personal stuff without using cPanel but keep all the DNS together so I don't have to use different NS's

  • Then you can just add zones in cPanel cluster and point the (A or other) records to the other server.

  • Trying to make it automatic

  • VestaCP also offers DNS clustering IMO, though haven't tried it myself. Its a very easy interface to operate
