cPanel DNSONLY is FREE software from cPanel, its function is to create DNS Clustering. cPanel DNSONLY can be installed on a VPS which is technically ideally located in a geographically different datacenter. For example, if we are going to setup 3 DNS Clusters, we can set up 3 VPS in 3 locations. For example VPS 1 in Indonesia (IIX), VPS 2 in the USA and VPS 3 in Germany. With DNS CLustering, it will benefit the DNS stability and acceleration of the Domain Propagation process. The DNS Cluster is POSIX compatible (Linux, * BSD, etc.) application server / client that provides all-in-one DNS Management for Web Hosting Companies, ISPs and Other Online Businesses. The DNS Cluster allows you to manage your DNS server more flexibly (dnscluster.eu). The DNS Cluster centralizes the zone of the hosting server on one server, the failure of redundancy in the DNS infrastructure and still allows the hosting customer to change the DNS zone on the hosting panel’s control interface. DNS Cluster allows your nameservers to be physically separate from the Server and several other activities. for example, a power outage, you still have a DNS function. In this way, visitors can reach the website on your server faster after the web server returns online.
If the minimum requirements above have been fulfilled, the next step is to prepare before the cPanel installation is done.
Server / VPS access
Access can be by remote SSH (putty in Windows) or terminal (Linux) or you can also use VNC (some VPS providers enable VNC).
Turn off Default Firewall
