ah I see you cant access the root via cpanel or WHM

Third party tool perhaps like SecureCRT or puddy, would that do the trick?

Are you sure you want to edit named.conf? What are you trying to do? There might be a different or more suitable way to do it.

Yes, SecureCRT or Putty would be the software to use to edit server files, but make sure you know what you are doing before playing with those programs. They can be very dangerous. ;)
