Reseller: Edit the DNS Zone Template
This feature of WHM allows you to apply a set of default DNS records every time you Create a New Account.
Modifying the DNS Zone Template can help you ensure that any custom DNS settings you may have or want each customer to use are used for each new sign-up you have. An example of the default Template can be reviewed below.
; cPanel %cpversion% ; Zone file for %domain% $TTL %ttl% @ %nsttl% IN SOA %nameserver%. %rpemail%. ( %serial% ; serial, todays date+todays 86400 ; refresh, seconds 7200 ; retry, seconds 3600000 ; expire, seconds 86400 ) ; minimum, seconds %domain%. %nsttl% IN NS %nameserver%. %domain%. %nsttl% IN NS %nameserver2%. %domain%. %nsttl% IN NS %nameserver3%. %domain%. %nsttl% IN NS %nameserver4%. %nameserverentry%. IN A %nameservera% %nameserverentry2%. IN A %nameservera2% %nameserverentry3%. IN A %nameservera3% %nameserverentry4%. IN A %nameservera4% %domain%. IN A %ip% localhost.%domain%. IN A 127.0.0.1 %domain%. IN MX 0 %domain%. mail IN CNAME %domain%. www IN CNAME %domain%. ftp IN A %ftpip%
