    Were working on a VPS offering and we need to be able to offer customers a way to manage their DNS.

    Can we not just give them a cpanel account for their domain only? How is this accomplished, the only way we see it is that it wants to create a web hosting account with it.

    This is just if they choose to use our name servers.

    Hello :)

    There are no native features available that allow for accounts for DNS purposes only. However, you are welcome to contribute to the following feature request:

    Nameserver Only Accounts

    Thank you.

    FRCorey,

    It is also possible to use the XML-API DNS functions:
    XML and JSON APIs

    With this you can build your own interface for managing DNS zones without the need of creating a hosting account.
