Hi,

I want to delete and remove a domain associated with my VPS via WHM cPanel.

There is an additional option in the Home->Account Functions->Terminate an Account checkbox stating:

Keep DNS Zone (necessary if removing an account because you have already moved it to a different server in the same DNS cluster)

What do they mean by "same DNS cluster"? I guess I don't have to have it checked since I haven't moved it to a different server, correct?

Thank you,
Victor

Do you have DNS cluster? How is the DNS setup?

DNS cluster is valid only if you have  2+ VPS with cPanel DNSONLY installed.

When you have two nameservers in different geographical locations and one goes down, you will still have DNS functionality and visitors can still reach the websites hosted on your server. DNS clusters also allow visitors to reach websites more quickly than if you had only one nameserver to process all of the DNS requests.
