    Is there anyway that resellers can edit the zone files they have created using the \'Add DNS Zone\' or the \'Park/Point Domain\' functions in WHM. This would be a great addition if it\'s possible. I hate getting emails requesting changes to DNS zones that could just as easily be performed by the reseller :)

    That would be a great addition.

    What if the reseller created an account for an already \"parked\" or \"pointed\" account...???

    what would happen then?
    Bind down?

    Thanks,

    I think they already can ... they won\'t see them listed in the drop list but they can put \"domain.com.db\" in the shortcut box and edit away. as a matter of fact they can delete, edit any zones. I had 2 resellers hacking at each other one time, it was ugley :-( Fighting over the same accounts.

    Pointing a domain adds an entry to the \"parked on top of\" domain in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

    wouldn\'t that cause a problem is a reseller was to delete a zone and then create the account again?

    Also, since the zone is not listed, what would happen if they created the new account without deleting the old zone??

    I guess that would create a double entry in /etc/named.conf which I know can cause bind to go down...

    In that case it would be safer not to allow access to \"adding a domain\" wouldn\'t it?

    Thanks, :)

    WHM will not setup an account if the domain is already in named or in httpd.conf.

    I wouldn\'t really bet on it.

    I already had bind down because of this.

    I think the WHM won\'t allow a new account if httpd.conf has it already. Where I had the problem was one reseller and the other reseller happened to be partners at one time, they split up. One took 1/2 and other took other 1/2. They did most of their money making on development. Well one of the clients decided to move to the others side because he liked his work better. The first guy wouldn\'t respond to requests to comply and I wasn\'t getting into it so I told them to behave or hit the raod. So the 2nd reseller tried to create the account on his side. No luck.. so then he deleted the zone that belonged to the other guy. It was down for a day or so. Well the 1st guy fixed the zone realized what the 2nd guy did to him and he fought back by pointing about 8 zones that belonged to the 2nd resellers clients...he pointed the zones to off the wall places like porn sites and stuff. One was a church site that was pointed to a porn site. Needless to say I got blamed for this by the 2nd guy who started this (zone changes that don\'t belong to you) thing in the first place. So I had a little fun and deleted both of them and kept their 6 months payments that had 4 months left. I had registered both of the domains that they used for their reseller hosting names. I held those in bulkregister. They are still down after 8 months. As for the other clients they had, I kept them up and forced the 2 resellers to explain to their clients what happened and what their options were. 100% of those accounts are now mine. The 2 resellers are now working real jobs. What a mess huh? It\'s what you get when you put 2 17 year old kids behind the wheel. I guess there is tons of stuff in there a reseller can break but you can\'t do anything about that. You have to trust who is in there just like you do on any system ..Cpanel or not.
