Your situation

You run a cPanel/WHM server and host a number of customer domains. You typically replicate your DNS with additional DNSONLY servers. Your DNS situation can be improved in reliability, latency, simplicity or price.

How BuddyNS helps

Our plugin automagically replicates your domain names as they are added or changed on cPanel. Your cPanel server leads our rock-solid, geographically sparse DNS cluster so smoothly you and your users won't even notice.


Integrating BuddyNS into your cPanel

DNS Health

Continuity

Wipe away DNS downtime: BuddyNS takes over when your cPanel DNS fails, and speeds up resolution when it's up. Our sparse, low-latency DNS backbone runs 100% uptime since inception, and resolves in <70ms to most of Planet Earth.

Simplicity

Simplicity

Get rid of extra servers! They degrade security, waste your time, waste resources and energy and spoil your focus. BuddyNS is secure, resilient, and geographically sparse. Fully transparent integration, while keeping full control on data and configs.

Costs

Economy

Save money on servers and connectivity, save time on maintenance, and save unnecessary risks of intrusion. Built for reliability, speed and security, our DNS cluster costs you a fraction of the money and stress compared to self-hosting.

Workflow overview

Installing as client/reseller is not supported, contact your admin!

  1. You install our integration plugin on your WHM server
  2. When you create/remove an account, cPanel replicates its domain on BuddyNS
  3. When your clients add/remove addon domains, cPanel syncs them at BuddyNS
  4. When a zone (domain data) is changed, BuddyNS replicates it within seconds

Tech details

  • cPanel hooks add/remove domains onto BuddyNS as they are added
  • A cron job syncs addon domains when added/removed by users and resellers
  • BuddyNS initiates zone transfers upon cPanel NOTIFYs a zone was modified
  • Pure-client implementation: no services added, no security affected.
  • Takes near-zero resources, operates with our efficient API.

Refer to our cPanel technical integration docs for requirements and tech details.
