This issue reported on SOLVED - [CPANEL-20535] Adding MX records to subdomains is fixed in 70.0.47.

However there are still issues when entering a domain that is a subdomain of the primary domain as an addon in the domain field.
Example:
Primary Domain: example.com
Addon Domain: subdom.example.com
Addon Subdomain: sub-subdom.example.com
Addon Directory: any

If you terminate the account it doesn't clean up the subdom.example.com DNS zone. This presents issues trying to use that domain in other ways. Removing the Addon, does properly remove the zone.

Hello @rinkleton,

I've moved this post to a new thread since it's associated to a new issue.

However there are still issues when entering a domain that is a subdomain of the primary domain as an addon in the domain field.
Example:
Primary Domain: example.com
Addon Domain: subdom.example.com
Addon Subdomain: sub-subdom.example.com
Addon Directory: any
Can you let me know the full steps you are taking to reproduce this issue? For instance, if you try to create an addon domain name that's a subdomain of the primary domain name of the account, it should present you with the following error message:

Code:
You cannot park a domain on top of itself.
Thank you.

I don't get that error. I vaguely remember getting it in the past, but I feel like there was a need for it so cpanel made changes to allow for it. But I could be confusing that with trying to park a subdomain of the root account on an account. I know there is a setting for this.

To reproduce:
- Create an account with primary domain: example.com

- Create an addon domain with
domain: subdom.example.com
subdomain: sub-subdom
directory: public_html

- Terminate account

This should leave a DNS zone for subdom.example.com still existing.

Being able to create an addon domain on itself is pretty important and powerful. It solves a lot of issues relating to sharing of VHOSTs and DNS Zones. As far as I can tell it works perfectly other than leaving the DNS zone after termination.
