    Hello Forum,

    I would like to edit existing cPanel DNSOnly Zone template and add few of my own choice.

    Where can I get information about editing these existing ones or adding new ?

    Thanks.

    There is no real difference between the zone files stored on the regular cPanel server and the DNSOnly server...

    But here is where you can find info on editing the zone template files: Edit DNS Zone Templates

    Note that changes only affects new zones added or if the zone is reset back to default.

    Hello :)

    Yes, you can edit the zone templates for new DNS zones via:

    "WHM Home >> DNS Functions >> Edit Zone Templates"

    You must modify existing DNS zones manually or through a custom script/bash command.

    Thank you.

    Thanks guys,

    But I do not see (Home >> DNS Functions >> Edit Zone Templates).
    I think its WHM spcific and it does not present in cPanel DNSOnly server.

    Can anyone please confirm ?

    Correct, that does not exist in DNSonly WHM.

    Typically, with a DNS-Only server, you are not actually creating the zones on it. Instead, the zones are synced from hosting servers with the standard version of cPanel/WHM installed, where you can edit the zone templates.

    Thank you.

    I feel this reduces the usability of DNSOnly solution. Personally I would expect below from DNSOnly

    1. Support for PowerDNS
    2. In place Zone Editor
    3. Templating support


    Currently I have worked out my own API based Editor but Templating is pending. I'll try to explore more in this area.
    Otherwise plain PowerDNS with MySql would be better for me.

    Thanks.
