Hello,

You could develop a custom bash script that manually modifies or adds to the DNS zone through the manipulation of the corresponding zone file in the /var/named/ directory. Then, configure that custom script to automatically run upon the creation of new subdomains via a hook event:

Guide to Standardized Hooks - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

You can find the corresponding API function for a hook by enabling "Debug mode is on. The system displays information about every stage for every hookable event, even if no hooks exist for that stage." under the "Development" tab in "WHM >> Tweak Settings". Then, perform the specific action you want to hook into via cPanel or WHM, and watch the output in /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log.

For example, the following cPanel API 1 function is utilized when adding an Alias in cPanel:

Cpanel::Api1::Park::park

You can find documentation on hooks with cPanel functions at:

Guide to Standardized Hooks - Cpanel Functions - Software Development Kit - cPanel Documentation

Thank you.
