  • domain dns question

    Hello

    I have a domain named : mydomain.com
    I have created ns1 and ns2 under domain registrar and I have hosted this domain under server1 also we have added ns1 , ns2 records for this domain under server1


    currently I bought new server ; I have created ns3 , ns4 for this domain under registrar ;

    I think I should create ns3 and ns4 A record on server 1 and point to IPs on server2 for dns working ;

    my question is : if server1 go down what happened for domains on server2 because dns for server2 was depended to server1 and what we should do for remove this problem ?

    Thank you

    Re: domain dns question

    If you are using cPanel server/s, then check cPanel DNS Clustering or you can use third party DNS services like dnsmadeeasy.com. Btw, why don’t you use CDN services like CloudFlare or MaxCDN?

      You can have DNS servers installed on both the servers to avoid this kind of a dependency in case on fails.

      This is for your easier understanding:

      1) Install DNS server on both the servers (Server1 & Server2).
      2) Setup 4 NS records, such that 2 (ns1 & ns2) are on Server1 & 2 (ns3 & ns4) on Server2.
      3) Have these 4 NS records set for your domains (which are to be hosted on both of your servers) in your domain registrar control panel.

      Such way, in case Server1 fails, Server2 will help resolve your domains which are hosted on both of them & the other way around too.
