Introduction

  • The Domain Name Service (DNS) service converts human-readable domain names (for example: example.com) to computer-readable IP addresses (for example: 192.0.32.10). DNS relies on the "DNS zones" that exist on the server, to convert the domain name to IP addresses.
    WHM offers the ability to add a DNS zone that will go into the administration of the DNS service installed on the server. This functionality is provided by
    DNS Functions, more precisely Add a DNS Zone. This DNS zone will be added after a template, which can also be edited from the WHM interface, specifically WHM >> Home >> DNS Functions >> Edit Zone Templates.
  • When adding new cPanel accounts or addon domains, dns zones are added automatically..

Requirement

  • WHM credentials. This data can be found in the management email of the reseller account or VPS with cPanel/WHM.

Steps

  • After logging in to the WHM panel on the left side of the page we will go to the DNS Functions section and click on Add a DNS Zone. Alternatively, we can look for this menu using the search field in the upper left.

  • On the next page we will have the fields:
    -IPv4 Address - An IP address to which DNS records point to
    -Domain - The primary domain of the DNS zone.
    -Associate with Account (Optional) - Here we will be able to select from the list a cPanel user who will have editing privileges over this DNS zone.
    Once the fields are filled in we will click on
    Add Zone.
