What is the best way to set up a Secondary DNS server in Plesk?

    Hello,

    I need to establish a secondary DNS server, hopefully using Plesk.

    I have 5 Plesk VPSs right now, so is it possible to use one of those for the secondary?

    Also, I use one VPS just for mail, so would that be an appropriate VPS to use? We seem to be having some intermittent DNS issues on the mail server from time to time.

    Thanks much in advance for your help,

    Damian

    You can also try 4psa's DNS Manager

    www.4psa.com

    That's what we use.

    You can then use each individual normal VPS as a primary and then have a dedicated secondary DNS VPS as the secondary for all of them. Or run two dedicated DNS VPSes, each running DNS Manager (or whatever solution you find is best for you).

    In all cases, the domain info is automatically grabbed from the source VPS using a small script that you install and run ever so often via a cronjob.

    Faris.
