    First i tried to change primary domain on account but i got error that DNS already exist so i remove from dns zone but ( i had i subdomains on that domain )...
    And i tried to remove from addon domain, but i can't because subdomains, i tried to remove subdomains but i can't because i don't have dns so i have loophole with dns and domain.

    Hello,

    Check to see if an entry for this domain exists in the /etc/userdomains file:

    Code:
    grep domain.tld /etc/userdomains
    If so, backup this file, and then edit it to remove the entry for the domain name:

    Code:
    cp -a /etc/userdomains /etc/backup-userdomains
    vi /etc/userdomains
    Once you've done this, try adding the DNS zone again.

    Thank you.
