Hi,
I would like to give certain users/accounts the ability to edit their dns zone files, i.e. add A records that point to completely different machines for example.
So far the only way that I have found to do this is to give them reseller privileges, and then they can edit their zone file from whm.

Is that correct? I.e. there isn't a way to do it via cpanel?

thanks

Correct, one must have at least reseller privileges to edit DNS Zone entries (other than MX entries).
