other DNS admin, remote nameservers
« on: October 28, 2017, 07:38:51 PM »
Hi,

How could one use CWP without hosting the DNS records in BIND, but in a remote DNS, say CloudFlare or EasyDNS?
Could then BIND be switched off completely or what should remain? Is there any FAQ/manual or instruction about such a use case?
Would it suffice to just put the NS records of the other DNS server into CWP NS records and their IPs, or how should one proceed?
Any useful step by step instruction much appreciated :)

Thank you!

simply point your domain dns records to your new nameservers and poweroff bind on your server.
By using remote nameservers you will need to manually setup all A, MX,  SPF and DKIM records for your domains and subdomains on the remote servers.

Note that dkim needs to be generated on cwp and then you copy dkim TXT records to remote dns servers.
