cPanel DNSOnly major changes

agentmishraagentmishra Member, Provider

not sure if any one has recently configured a cpanel dnsonly server

they have removed the ioncube loader.

what so ever you do, the ioncube loader wont load (natively)

i tried to change the cpanel.config, but the changes gets reverted back

many dev's who have cpanel addons/modules for the dnsonly servers, and unable to resolve this

the cpanel support says, since this product is for dnsonly, it wont support any thing else (they wont support anything other than the dnsonly functioning)

if any one has got this issue, and could get the ioncube to work, do let us know

thanks

    Most definitely, but at the moment it is apparently going to be free but licensed track to see usage.

    That would just be silly.

    cPanel is part of Plesk now and became more greedy as they need some money for that SolusVM V2 development :smile: :smile: :smiley: !

    Will DNSONLY licenses remain free?
    While we can’t promise it will always be the case (only Sith deal in absolutes), we can say >that it’s the plan for them to remain free at this time. We need more information before >we can make any decisions at all. We can also say that if that ever changes we’ll be as >open and honest with everyone in our community about it as possible.

    The BIND, PowerDNS, MyDNS, sync is open source, in this case cPanel will be charge for interface and installation bash script

    No, cPanel is not a part of Plesk - you got it wrong.
    cPanel is a part of the investment firm that also owns Plesk, so Plesk and cPanel has same parent company (an investment firm, that invests in all kind of stuff), Plesk doesn't own anything of cPanel.

    Additionally, Plesk got price increases because Plesk had financial issues when it got acquired - cPanel doesn't have financial issues, and the DNSOnly license thing got announced a lot earlier - and the licensing got introduced to also track usage of their DNSOnly installs.

    cPanel is going in a direction that introduces profiles/roles in servers, you'll be able to have a "Everything role", A "webserver" role, a "mail" role - "DNS" might be another role one day - but tracking with licensing is perfectly fine IMO.

    And if people have a problem with the costs, then they can just build their own DNS servers anyway, it's fairly easy to sync zones around :-)

  • That answer to question "Will DNSONLY licenses remain free?"... They definitely will charge for DNSonly solution. At least they gave a fair warning.

    "Third party modules"

  • Ask cpanel about ioncube. In general, cpanel has its own php-fpm, so there is a php and its modules. Probably few cli commands and issue resolved

    the third party who owns the module is working on it cluelessly...

    the fix is easy, just don't encode it - nothing hard.

  • Use IP licensing method and give license to only buyers. Update your module frequently.

    this, only if the module owner agrees to..
