What is Zonecloud?

Create your own DNS Cluster for your web hosting infrastructure easily.

Zonecloud is a DNS Cluster application that synchronizes zones between web servers and DNS servers no matter what operating system or panel is installed on the web servers.


Unified Experience
Zonecloud runs on cPanel servers, DirectAdmin servers, Plesk, Virtualmin, ISPConfig, and generally on any web server that runs BIND or/and PowerDNS and creates a unified DNS Cluster on Multi / Mixed hosting environments.

Build your own DNS Cluster with Zonecloud:

  • Supports any panel that uses BIND or PowerDNS like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, Virtualmin etc.
  • Easily transfer accounts and domains from one server to another without downtime or changing nameservers
  • Exclude domains from cluster / server (for testing, migrations or transfers)
  • Duplicate domains protection
  • Logging Facility (On controller and local syslog)
  • Low Bandwidth Consumption
  • Security focused. IP & Token authentication.
  • No limit on Agents, Nodes and DNS Zones.
  • Easy setup (RPM and DEB packages) and easy to use config file
