    When I create a new account, WHM automatically creates a DNS zone. My DNS is managed on a completely different server and BIND is not even running on the WHM server where the account is being created.

    Is there a way to prevent the creation of the DNS zone? It isn't being used anyway so why create it?

    Disable the nameserver in the service manager in whm.

    You could also write a dnsadmin plugin to trap and send the requests to your system.

    This does not prevent the DNS zone from getting created when you create a new account.
