DNS Zone Templates is a feature available in WHM which is to apply a set of default DNS records whenever a new account is created. If you are a reseller, you can able to update the default DNS zone template used for creating a new account. These templates can automatically update the associated zone settings whenever a new domain is created. If a custom template was applied to a new account, it can also be still edited with any of the domains. The following steps help to create or edit a DNS template in WHM.
Steps to edit DNS Zone Templates:
Step 1: Login to WHM and go to the option ‘DNS Functions’.
Step 2: Select the option ‘Edit Zone Templates’. Here you can able to see three templates such as Simple, Standard and Standardvirtualftp.
Simple is for domains with an A record only whereas standard is for domains on a dedicated IP address, parked domains, and addon domains. And standardvirtualftp is for domains on a shared IP address.
Step 3: The template ‘standardvirtualftp’ is used to create a custom DNS zone template for every new account created in your reseller panel. You can edit this template with custom settings and then click the option ‘Save’.
Note: Changing the default DNS Zone Template can cause major DNS issues and affects the websites. Contact your hosting service provider before changing it.
