At present, cPanel DNS ONLY does not offer access to the Update Preferences area of WebHost Manager; I believe this makes it more difficult for less experienced server administrators to switch between tiers on DNS ONLY, (i.e., between stable, release, current, edge, and between LTS tiers like 11.30 and 11.32). When using cPanel DNS ONLY, the only alternative is to manually edit /etc/cpupdate.conf using command-line (CLI) access through SSH or the server console. In the spirit of offering a better experience when using cPanel DNS clustering, I would really like to see the Update Preferences area made available to WHM on cPanel DNS ONLY.
To clarify, I am referring to the following area of WebHost Manager:
WHM: Main >> Server Configuration >> Update Preferences (Update Config)
While searching the forums, I found at least one other person has expressed interest in wanting to change tiers in cPanel DNS ONLY, as evidenced by the following post from March of 2012: Upgrade WHM and cPanel -- To quote: "And how to upgrade DNS Only Servers to 11.32, the are running on STABLE but there is no Option to Change this to RELEASE or CURRENT."
If you are interested in this feature request for cPanel DNS ONLY, whether you are for or against it, please express your thoughts and share your opinion. Thanks!
