    Hi

    On of my customer able to add addon domain without setting domain nameserver with a valid registrar and configured to point to our DNS servers. my client use only a record to point to our server IP

    This option already check

    Untick: Allow users to Park/Addon Domains on top of domains owned by other users.

    Untick: Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that are not registered

    Tick: Prevent users from parking/adding on common internet domains


    How i prevent this action any setting must i check ?

    Thanks

    Please make sure that you have uncheck the option "Allow Creation of Parked/Addon Domains that resolve to other servers (i.e. domain transfers) [This can be a major security problem. If you must have it enabled, be sure to not allow users to park common internet domains.]" from tweak settings.

    thewebhosting is correct in that the following option should be disabled (unticked/unchecked) to achieve the desired behavior:
    * Allow creation of Parked/Addon Domains that resolve to other servers.

    You may find more details about each of the options in our documentation for the WHM Tweak Settings page via the link below:

    Is this user able to login to WHM? In other words, is he a reseller?

    user also can change his nameserver and point only A record after domain succesfully add as addon domain with registered nameserver.

    Is there any feature to prevent this ?

    Thanks

    If the user is temporarily changing his or her DNS/name servers at their domain registrar just to add the domain as an add-on domain or parked domain, then later reverts the DNS/name servers to a different set, there is nothing one can do to prevent this as it is a function they perform at their domain registrar, not within cPanel/WHM.
