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?

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.
