In this article, we will explain how you can enable or disable the advanced DNS Zone Editor in WHM.

When you are handling cPanel as a reseller, you can choose whether individual cPanel accounts should access the Advanced DNS Zone Editor. The Basic DNS Zone editor offers A and CNAME records without modifying default records.

The Advanced DNS Zone Editor provides A, CNAME, and TXT records, along with the ability to modify default records. As a reseller, you can enable or disable this option for all cPanels through your WebHost Manager (WHM).

Follow these steps to enable or disable the advanced DNS Zone Editor in WHM:

  1. Log into your WHM.
    WHM login
  2.  Find the “Feature Manager” tool under the Packages category.

  4. The name of the new list will show up under the “Edit a Feature List” section. Make sure it’s chosen in the dropdown and click on the Edit button. On this page, you’ll find a list of features for accounts with this list. Choose or unchoose the checkbox next to the “Advanced DNS Zone Editor” field.
