In this guide we will show you how to modify DNS in WHM. As a reseller there may be times when you have to make changes to the DNS entries for a domain, this can be accomplished in WHM without knowing the cPanel password of the account you want to modify.

Keep in mind that any DNS modification can take up to 24 hours to propagate. Also, be careful when you modify DNS, as incorrect entries can cause a domain not to load.

How to Modify DNS:


  1. Login to WHM (Web Host Manager).
  2. In the left navigation menu, click DNS Functions, then click the Edit DNS Zone button.
