    Is it possible to allow end-user to edit their own dns zone? Adding/deleting dns entries, etc.

    No, these are root / reseller functions. The only way is to make each user a very limited reseller, by limiting his accounts, and other options. hth

    Then I'd like to suggest this be added to cpanel. DNS Management for end-user is important and it will save time for us.

    That is one more feature to support, that about 90% of people do not grasp.

    You sure you want to sit there all day and remove/edit zones your users messed up?

    I agree some DNS management would be good for users, but it needs to be thought out and not give them a full blown WHM DNS editor.

    Go on, have a guess
    Then you can suggest it to them using the correct route through bugzilla:

    However, as myusername points out, the concept is fraught with problems as it only takes a simply typo from an end-user and your whole DNS sctructure can be on its knees and no domains resolving.

    If it is properly done, then there should be no problems. This feature should be available as an option in cPanel and it is to the server administrator to decide whether to enable it or not. Most control panel now have this feature such as DirectAdmin, Plesk and I don't see why cPanel can't add it.

    If you are interested into this feature please add your vote at http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/show_bug.cgi?id=1971

    yes theres the feature as well as "Restore Default DNS" settings which can be added to allow end-users to revert back to original settings.

    If you submit a feature request, i'm positive it will be looked into and considered.

    That is the best means to have your ideas possibly placed within cPanel.
