    Where does cPanel get its default DNS settings from for when someone sets up a new domain (and DNS zone) on the server? Specifically, here is a fake dig output.. how can I change "wtf.isthis.com."?? :

    ;; QUESTION SECTION:
    ;domain.com. IN SOA

    ;; ANSWER SECTION:
    domain.com. 14400 IN SOA nameserver.net. wtf.isthis.com. 1057224543 28800 7200 3600000 86400

    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION:
    domain.com. 14400 IN NS nameserver2.net.
    domain.com. 14400 IN NS nameserver1.net.

    ;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
    nameserver2.net. 171068 IN A 207.44.243.2


    Again, I am talking about how cPanels creates a zone by default when an account is created. I can easily modify it but I don't want resellers to have to do that. I don't even know where it is getting the domain name it is putting in the "wtf.isthis.com" spot. How can I fix it so it puts what I want there each time an account is created?
