    Where do I go to do this on a cPanel VPS? I find the WHM interface for editing a large zone file (especially with all those A records since WHM 11.23) a real pain.

    Hi,

    If you are an reseller you will be having an option to edit the DNS Via WHM. Its not applicable to edit the DNS in cPanel. Do you have the shell access?

    Thanks. But, as I mentioned, doing it via WHM for a large zone file is a pain. I am trying to figure out how to do it via shell.
