    This is going to be awesome.
    The DNS will be on the same server still. The only thing that is changing is that the IPs are in different class C's so that there are no more problems with certain foreign domain registrars. With shared hosting there just is no real need to have seperate nameservers elsewhere, if the server is down everything will still be down. If anyone wants to discuss this further, please create a new thread.

    More on the custom nameservers - Will we be informed once the move happens, so that we can quickly go in and change the IP of these custom nameservers?

    Is there a potential of downtime for these nameservers if the move happens and we don't know about it, because they point to the old IP's?

    Will you post a message or announcement before each server gets moved?

    Thanks!
    All information, including new nameserver IPs will be posted before the transfers even take place (at least 48 hours in advance). We will likely send out e-mails to all customers on the server as well to ensure that everyone is notified in advance. If you have used the previous IPs and do not change them it will result in downtime when the old server is eventually taken offline entirely.

    Sorry about the confusion here. Yep, I guess clustering it is.

    I was referring to an architecture where it was possible to have each cPanel server (cpanel32, 33 34 etc) call just a couple of separate stand-alone Dathorn SMTP mail (and perhaps SQL) servers, rather than each cpanel server having to run its own SMTP service, SQL service etc etc as happens now and which always seemed rather in-efficient to me. Conceptually it is identical to what you are proposing to do with DNS.

    It was a notion tossed around on these forums last year:
    http://forums.dathorn.com/showthread...ght=clustering

    It seems to have some advantages, and while you were doing it to DNS, and planning a big server move, it seemed a good time to ask about the issue again :-)

    But it is not a big deal for me. Maintaining uptime and security as you upgrade the servers, and ease of any migration to the the new systems, are my main concerns.
    Please read my post above regarding the DNS. The only reason it has changed is to meet requirements of certain foreign domain registrars.

    That setup is not entirely feasible in mass shared hosting nor is it possible with cPanel. I wouldn't want thousands or even hundreds of customers depending on a single server for e-mail, for example. If there was a problem, I'd much rather it affect 60 customers instead of at least a couple hundred.

    Yes, it is a better use of server resources, it's just not even an option right now.

    I have some websites on Cpanel10.
    I'm using Dathorn's nameserver, i.e. DNS19.GZO.COM and DNS20.GZO.COM.
    I have to change something? Or these nameserver will be ok?

    Default ClientExec

    When should we expect ClientExec?

    You will be able to use those nameservers so long as your registrar never had you input the nameserver IP addresses as well.

    Just to make sure I'm understanding this ...

    I use custom nameservers. As long as the custom nameserver is given at my registrar, but NOT the physical IP address, the domain will still resolve. So I can tell my customers to simply remove the IP address numbers, and leave the custom nameservers, right?

    When I set up my account, I also applied for and was given a unique IP address (for planned use of SSL). My custom nameservers are linked to that custom IP address. Will that IP address be pointed to the new server automatically, or is there something else I need to do? I will still need to maintain that unique IP, or another one, for secure transactions, right?

    When creating custom nameservers you always have to specify an IP, you will have to change those. But users using the custom nameservers should not have to change anything unless their registrar requests IPs when adding nameservers for a domain to use, although very few registrars do this now.

    All those with dedicated IPs will be given new IPs.
