    how can i change the RNAME at the DNS zone template for a reseller ?

    the %rpemail% seems to be the variable that is pulling out the data. From which file is it calling the value ?

    thanks

    Found it

    I had the same question, but could not find the answer here in the forums.

    I dug further and found that in the DNS Templates, when it comes across the variable %rpemail%, it replaces it with the value that you have entered in:

    WHM >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup

    Server Contact E-Mail Address _________________
    * Enter an email address you can be reached at in case a problem arises with this server.​

    Thus, if you have listed webmaster@example.com in WHM as your Server Contact E-mail Address, then in the DNS zone file, it will show as webmaster.example.com.

    So, now we both know. :)
